Did You Know?

A bicycle commuter who rides four miles to work, five days a week, avoids 2,000 miles of driving and about 2,000 pounds of CO2 emissions each year.

Still looking for a 2010 calendar?

Well, we at Active Trans are recommending a couple of cool bike calendars that may fit your needs.

Thought You Knew Us is in their second year producing classy and cool bicycling pin-up calendars (women and men versions available) that benefit the Chicago Women's Health Center. The editions this year are exceptional and Active Trans is honored to be included as a supporter. Congrats to Alexis F., one of our members, on her efforts putting these together.

And, another member, Elizabeth A, is offering a Chicago Bikes calendar with cool photos that she took herself. Proceeds from this calendar will benefit the Chicago Ride of Silence that Elizabeth organizes each May.

So, grab a calendar, hit all your deadlines and meetings, and know you'll be supporting some worthy causes.
