Footprints in your face!

Active Transportation Alliance's Footprints coaches will be parking bikes and finding bike & transit routes all over the Chicago Southland this summer. Farmers Markets from Park Forest to Tinley Park and towns in between will feature valet bike parking thanks to Footprints and donated portable bike racks from Saris Cycling Group. Coaches are bringing big laminated Chicagoland Bicycle Maps and whiteboard markers [Wipe on, wipe off….] to show you routes on the spot, and can send south suburban residents home with a prescription for replacing one local car trip a week with a bike, walk or transit trip.

Lead coach Mary Lynn Wilson [] brought the racks and new sign out to Park Forests' Farmers Market last Saturday – and valet parked four bikes! Look for Footprints Coach appearances on the calendar. Or sign up on-line –
