Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Host an out-of-town bicycle advocate for a few days this July!

Active Trans is looking for some friendly people close to downtown Chicago willing to offer a bed or sofa to a bicycle advocate for a few days this July. The Alliance for Biking & Walking is hosting a training in Chicago, and because attendees will be coming from small non-profits around the country, many of them would greatly appreciate a place to sleep to avoid the cost of a hotel.

Guests would likely arrive July 19 and leave July 22. If you are able to host an advocate in your home, please fill out this short form to help us match you up with an out-of-town guest.
