We're so excited you're interested in joining or donating to the Revolution!

The BORP Revolution Ride & Festival brings people of all ages and abilities together for a day of cycling, celebration, and fun. The 16th Annual Revolution Ride will take place on September 22, 2018, in the beautiful California wine country of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. Please help support the adaptive sports and recreation programs of Bay Area Outreach & Recreation Program (BORP) by donating or joining the REV Ride today. 

All participants who will be riding, rolling or strolling in the REV, as well as guests attending only the Festival, must register and sign a participant liability waiver, either online during registration or prior to the event if someone else registers for them.

About BORP

At BORP, people with physical disabilities and visual impairments engage in sports and recreation at all levels, from competitive team sports to recreational activities and outings. Through BORP, athletes and participants gain confidence, independence, and self-esteem. They learn new skills, such as improved wheelchair control, how to navigate transit systems, and how to set goals and work to achieve them—skills that carry over into in all aspects of life.


Funds raised from the Revolution go a long way in enabling BORP to  continue offering a full and growing  menu of  adaptive sports and recreation opportunities for people with physical disabilities throughout  the greater Bay Area, with 79% of all funds raised going directly to programs, which, in turn, have a major impact on the quality of life for BORP participants
