Frequently Asked Questions:
- Who provided the funding for Bicycle Revolution?
This film was funded by about a dozen small grants from diverse educational programs at the Claremont Colleges in southern California. The universities themselves had no influence on the content or perspective of the film, which emerged from the views of the participants in the experience and from the decisions of filmmakers Dr. Paul Steinberg and Kevin Foxe.
- Are you affiliated with any particular organization?
This is an independent, nonprofit project headed by Dr. Paul Steinberg and his students at Harvey Mudd College. We are not affiliated with any particular advocacy organization or narrow policy agenda. We welcome the diversity of ideas required to bring about equitable transitions to bicycle- and pedestrian-friendly cities.
