The Revolution Ride and Festival is a one-of-a-kind event that redefines—even revolutionizes—the way people think about cycling and disability. It’s the largest fundraiser for Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP), a nonprofit organization that offers life-changing sports and recreation programs for people with physical disabilities.
This year’s Revolution will be at the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country in Santa Rosa, CA on Saturday, September 21.
Like triathlon, this fun event features Jonathan Newman’s favorite sports: Goalball, Power Soccer, and Wheelchair Basketball. Join us as we break down (or through) ideas of ability and disability and to bring people together to discover, play and have fun.
Participate in one, two, or all three sports. Enjoy snacks and a great community.
BORP’s Opening Day is coming up on Saturday, September 15. Opening Day is the day when we showcase our sports programs and give friends, family, community members, etc. the chance to try out some of our sports including: adapted cycling, goalball, power soccer and wheelchair basketball.

Set against the backdrop of the stunning wine country of Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley, the “REV” is one part cycle-a-thon, one part celebration with food, wine, and post-ride professional massages, and one part inspiration.
