About this Event

Join Bike-Walk Indian River County for a FREE screening of the award-winning movie Bicycle Revolution, followed by a discussion with local leaders on how you can help make our community an even better place to live!

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. 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.

The movie will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on ways the average citizen can interact with local government officials to bring about positive change in the community. While the focus will be on bicycle safety, the message - that the average person can make a difference - is much broader that just bicycling safety. The panel discussion will be moderated by Larry Reisman, Community Editor, Indian River Press Journal. The panelists are:

  • Hugh Aaron, President, Bike Walk Indian River County
  • Jim Mann, Senior Planner, Indian River County MPO
  • Jason Jeffries, Planning and Development Director, City of Vero Beach
  • Bob Solari, Chairman, Indian River County Board of County Commissioners
