Updating regional bike map

Katie Tully and I are happy to announce that the Tawani Foundation gave The Active Transportation Alliance a grant to update the Chicagoland regional Bike Map. This will give us an opportunity to update the look of the map and include many new bike facilities that exist in Chicago and in the suburbs. We will be publishing the updated map in April, 2010 and are looking to the community to help us with some of the updating tasks.

We seek volunteers to help with the following:

  • Identify new routes
  • Field check routes and trails
  • Proof the updated map

We will be having a kickoff party on Tuesday, September 15 from 6pm-7pm at 9 W. Hubbard. Please email me at if you would like to attend or if you would like to be on the bike map committee.
