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

Dropping temperatures are giving some bike shops a reason to celebrate. Here are some cool things that local bike shops are doing this winter:
The Turin Bicycle Shop in Evanston is putting on their annual food drive and encouraging their customers to give what they can. Amling’s Cycle bike shop is getting into the spirit of giving with these two fun events: Amling's Cycle Holiday Toy Ride Trivia Challenge and the Annual Holiday Toy Ride where riders donate toys at the end of the ride.
Are your local bike shops doing anything like this? Please let us know and keep supporting your local bike shops during the winter months!
