Cycling Tip from Chris: "If you bike anywhere in or near Chicago, you should be a member of the Active Transportation Alliance (link: http://www.activetrans.org/
membership). The staff members and volunteers of this non-profit work tirelessly to improve biking, walking, and transit in the Chicago Region. The greater our membership, the louder our voice, and the more resources Active Trans has to get things done. (Full disclosure: I serve on the board of directors)."
Also Follow Chris' advice and: "Get out your vote next Tuesday, February 22 (link: http://www.
chicagoelections.com/), for mayoral and aldermanic candidates who appreciate the importance of biking, walking and transit. I'm on the political action committee of Walk Bike Transit. We help foster relationships between constituents and locally elected officials around active transportation issues. Sign up at http://walkbiketransit.org/ signup "
