Members celebrate their ride, Dutch-style

Yesterday, a few dozen Active Trans members celebrated riding for fun and for transportation at Dutch Bike Company. Key draws of the member mixer event were test rides of the store’s Bakfiets cargo bike and a viewing of a Chicago police training video recently produced by Active Trans consultants at the Chicago Department of Transportation. The 13-minute video gives police officers the tools to enforce traffic safety laws as they apply to motorists and cyclists sharing the road. The video underscores two key component of Active Trans’ work: increasing safety and educating road users. You can see how thrilled our members were to see the training video.
