Program 3: Cycle For Change Shorts

These stories celebrate the change makers, the advocates, and the activists who are pushing the bike movement forward in their communities and redefining what it means to ride a bike.


Cycle For Change Shorts features stories about:

  • Jools Walker rediscovers her love of cycling and her desire to create space for young black woman like her
  • The story of Team USA Paracyclist, Clara Brown in pursuit of athletic greatness as a walking quadriplegic
  • European bike couriers use cutting edge technology to challenge corporate giants like Uber Eats and Deliveroo
  • A twenty-six-year-old woman learns how to ride a bike a little later in life than most
  • The city of Monterrey, Mexico is in crisis due to a lack of bicycle infrastructure
  • Ayesha McGowan becomes the first African American female professional road cyclist
  • Kailey Kornhauser and fellow “fat cyclist” Marley Blonsky are on a mission to change the idea that people with larger bodies can't ride bikes — not just on screens, but on trails and in people’s minds
  • A collective of cycling communities in Los Angeles fight for protected bike lanes, and road safety — determined to bring a new era of mobility justice to the city
  • ... and more!

TA's mission is to reclaim New York City's streets from the automobile and to advocate for better walking, biking, and public transit for all New Yorkers. Through grassroots organizing, data-driven research, and strategic communication campaigns, TA advances infrastructure and policy improvements that prioritize people, create safer streets, and ultimately realize a more accessible, sustainable, and equitable city. Since our founding in 1973, we are proud to have led and won the critical campaigns that brought the first public bike share system, the first protected bike lanes, the world's largest automated speed safety camera system, and the nation's first Vision Zero initiative to New York City.
