A Magical Bike Love Night in the Theater

Live the Revolution is a bicycle-themed storytelling event that benefits The Street Trust’s mission to make it safe and convenient for everyone to walk, bike, and ride public transit. Sugar Wheel Works founded this event as their annual anniversary party and a way to support the good work of The Street Trust (back then, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance).

Join us for this fun night of powerful stories, a raffle, a custom Valentine’s card making station, tasty treat, and an awesome crowd.

Meet the Storytellers

David Guettler

Founder of River City Bicycles

Dave is a 35-year veteran in the bike industry. Even though Dave was born and raised in the Detroit area, he considers cars way too mainstream, and eschewed owning one until well into his twenties. He has lately reverted back to being carfree. Dave’s love of riding bikes has taken him around the world. Dave completed a six-month bike tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1980, won a trophy (his only racing success ever) racing mountain bikes in 1981, and has ridden extensively through Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, Clackamas, and many other places. He considers his biggest success to be teaching his autistic spectrum daughter Haley how to safely be a cyclist.

Momoko Saunders

Co-Founder of Bike Farm and Operations Director for BIKETOWN

Momoko rides her bike not only to get around but also as means toward mental and physical balance. She is constantly amazed at where her bike has taken her; the many mountains, countries, careers, and relationships. She has it to thank for her current positions as Operations Director for BIKETOWN, Co-Chair of PBOT’s Bureau Budget Advisory Committee, and Board Member of Portland Society and Bike Farm.

Keyonda McQuarters

Local Shero for Black Girls Do Bike PDX

Keyonda is a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother of four, and a friend. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Keyonda, her husband, and their four kids relocated to Portland about three and half years ago. Keyonda manages the Black Girls Do Bike Portland group, and hosts rides several times a week. Keyonda believes her bike is essential to her well-being. “Riding my bike is how I relax. It’s my sanity. It helps me do things with my family, and keeps us active as a family.” Keyonda is a Women Bike Roll Model, paving the way for more women in Portland, especially women of color, to give riding a chance. Keyonda also hopes to change the perception that you need a fancy bike to ride — the best bike for you is the bike you already have.

Jocelyn Gaudi Quarrell

Founder of Komorebi Cycling Team & Director of Marketing and Sales for Portland Design Works

Jocelyn is a Texas native, started cycling in Massachusetts, and now calls Oregon home. For more than a decade, the bicycle has been central to her life, guiding her health, personal growth, career, romances, and more. She worked with the Bicycle Transportation Alliance coordinating the Bike Commute Challenge, helped launch bike share in New York City, and is currently the Marketing Director for Portland Design Works. Jocelyn loves off-road cycling in every form and is an advocate for sustainable trail access across the state. She sits on the board for the Northwest Trail Alliance and is the president of the Oregon Timber Trail Alliance. Jocelyn founded the Komorebi Cycling Team — a non-competitive women’s bikepacking club — in spring 2015 to empower women to adventure by bicycle and has led dozens of ladies out for their first bikepacking experiences. When she’s not riding, talking, or thinking about bikes, Jocelyn enjoys cheering on the Portland Timbers and Trail Blazers, drinking coffee, and adding more plants to her yard. She lives in North Portland with her husband Danny, Bruno the dog, and Birdie the cat.
