Join us for the fourth annual Live the Revolution, a bicycle-themed storytelling event that benefits the Bicycle Transportation Alliance’s Walk+Bike safety education program. For the past four years Sugar Wheel Works has been celebrating their anniversary with this great event as a way to inspire the next generation to ride!
“I remember my first bike—a little pink Schwinn ‘My Fair Lady’ spec’d with a banana seat and a bell! I had the training wheels for half a summer before I declared them useless and in one afternoon I had learned the art of the two-wheeler. Once I had a bike no television could keep me inside—the world was mine to discover. Today I ride a pink Sweet Pea bicycle spec’d with a brooks saddle, bell and no training wheels!”
-Jude Gerace, Owner Sugar Wheel Works
Live the Revolution is a collection of stories told live by your favorite Portland personalities. This year we will feature stories told by Chris DiMinno, chef at ClydeCommon, Heidi Swift, blogger for gritandglimmer.com, Joseph Ahearne, framebuilder at Ahearne Cycles, and Sarah Mirk, editor at Bitch Magazine. Each will regale you with a story from their adventures on their beloved two wheeled steed.
This year, Live the Revolution is sponsored in large by Sugar Wheel Works, Metrofiets Beer Bike, Abraham Fixes Bikes, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Bethany Bauman Design and Paul Components! With such great sponsors we’ve made the event bigger and better than ever. This year we’ll be telling tall bike tales at none other than the historic Clinton Street Theater.
