In its fourth year, Live the Revolution is the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s annual evening of live storytelling to celebrate bicycling culture and design. Whether finding the perfect balance of form and function in a new bicycle frame, or crafting routes to work around existing bicycle facilities and infrastructure, bicyclists have deep, lived experience of design. Taking cues from the Moth and Back Fence PDX, Live the Revolution brings six storytellers on stage to share their most entertaining stories of cycling adventures, incidents and unexpected encounters.
All proceeds from ticket sales support the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s Walk + Bike safety education programs for elementary school students in Portland and Oregon. The BTA is a non-profit working to create more livable and sustainable communities by making bicycling safe and accessible. Working at the intersection of culture and urban planning, the BTA promotes sustainable design by both advocating for improved bicycling conditions and encouraging bicycling across generations.
By empowering students to become safe and confident riders who view bicycling as a viable mode of daily transportation, the BTA’s Walk + Bike education transforms attitudes towards transportation planning and urban design. Live the Revolution will help expand the BTA’s Walk + Bike education to reach 35,000 more students each year.
Admission is free.
