Fans of NBC’s new J.J. Abrams show Revolution are in for a treat next week. The series is teaming up with Transportation Alternatives to make its network premiere screening a special biking event and we have VIP tickets to give away! Comment below telling us why you like to bike and you could be one of 10 lucky winners to receive a VIP ticket to the premiere on Sept. 4th at 7:30pm at the Hudson River Park’s Pier 57.
Revolution is a new sci-fi series that takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where all advanced technology — from computers, cars, and planes to even batteries — has been disabled. Survivors are forced to adapt to a world without technology and fight off those who are trying to take over after the collapse of power. The series focuses on the Matheson family who possesses an item that is the key to not only finding out why technology stopped working.
Since Revolution is about a world where there is no electricity available, NBC and Transportation Alternatives are also looking for 40 volunteer cyclists to spin their wheels during the 1 hour show to manually power the enormous outdoor screen! Volunteers will receive a T-shirt, a free membership to Transportation Alternatives, and a welcome kit from the biking non-profit themselves.
Bike valet will be ample but available seats will not so remember to leave your comment below to win VIP tickets! We will contact the lucky winners by Friday, August 31st.
