Bicycle Revolution follows a class of fifteen students at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, California, who cycle to twelve cities in order to explore the challenges of creating bicycle-friendly cities, which offers a window into the politics of social change in urban settings. The class is literally on wheels — the film documents the students’ rides to meet with knowledgeable decision- makers, transportation planners, and community activists in Southern California.
The film explores the issues of bicycle infrastructure, “invisible cyclists,” bike-sharing programs, cyclists’ safety, and bike commuting and provides a guide for citizens to become involved with their city’s bicycle advocacy groups and planning commissions. This screening of Bicycle Revolution will be accompanied by a discussion session about cycling issues and policy in Sonoma County.
Admission is free (donations gladly accepted!)
