Live the Revolution
Bike love is in the air.
Join us for the seventh annual Live the Revolution, presented by Sugar Wheel Works and Gladys Bikes. Live the Revolution is a bicycle-themed storytelling event that benefits The Street Trust’s Safe Routes to School education program. For the past six years, Sugar Wheel Works has been celebrating its 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 Sweetpea bicycle spec’d with a brooks saddle, bell and no training wheels!”
-Jude Gerace, Owner, Sugar Wheel Works
Online ticket sales have concluded. Tickets will be available at the door.

Safe Routes to School For Every Kid. Support the revolution.
We know you love bikes. We also know you love being able to get to a date with your bike safely. We know that if you and your +1 end up with little ones, you’ll want them to be able to bike and walk to school safely. The Street Trust recently launched the statewide For Every Kid campaign, which aims to secure critical funding that will educate students and families, fix neighborhood streets, and increase access to transit for every kid in Oregon. Live the Revolution raises awareness for our Safe Routes to School efforts, and we encourage you to sign the petition today.
