Did You Know?

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

Photo contest featuring best & worst places to bike and walk

Active Trans wants you to get out your camera and show us the best and worst places to bike and walk in Chicagoland. We’re offering $250 and a registration for MB Financial Bike the Drive to the lucky photographer who submits the largest number of correctly tagged photos.

Anyone who uploads a correctly tagged photo will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 REI gift card, as well as an Active Trans membership and event registrations. We’ll also be selecting “best photos” for each section in the region (Chicago, West, South, North, Northwest Indiana).

Contest ends April 30st, so start shooting!
