Chicago meets Copenhagen with Alderman Osterman and Pawar

UPDATED Sept. 27: Due to the overwhelming interest in this event, we are moving the slideshow presentation down the block to the Swedish American Museum to ensure everyone can see the slideshow, and we'll walk to the Hopleaf afterwards for socializing! Details updated below.

Park your bike at the Hopleaf's brand new bike corral and join Active Trans, Ald. Harry Osterman (48th Ward) and Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th Ward) for a very special evening to celebrate bike-friendly cities.

Earlier this year, the Bikes Belong Foundation took Aldermen Osterman and Pawar to Copenhagen along with representatives from the Chicago Department of Transportation to see how one of the world's most bicycle-friendly cities works. Our evening will include a presentation with a slideshow. The aldermen will be joined by Scott Kubly from CDOT to share observations from the trip.

Thursday, October 4
7-8PM presentation at Swedish American Museum, 5211 N. Clark St., Chicago
8-9PM socializing at the Hopleaf (upstairs bar), 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago

The event is free and open to all. Cash bar available. No RSVP or bicycle necessary!
