Although people of color make up about one third of the population, they make up 46.1 percent of pedestrian deaths.

Winter Bike Challenge, presented by Keating Law Offices, wraps up

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and brutal February weather, nearly 350 people suited up and participated in the 2021 Winter Bike Challenge, presented by Keating Law Offices.

Overall, riders logged nearly 2,000 miles over the course of 300 trips.

During the two-week challenge, riders saw all types of cold weather thrown at them, including one day with over ten inches of snow in the Chicago-area. Despite the snow that day, eight winter riders still got out and logged miles. Impressive!

Active Trans is hopeful that we’ll return to hosting a live Winter Bike Rally in Daley Plaza in 2022 and may even bring back the Challenge component again for next year.

In the meantime, we are hopeful that our largest fundraising event, Bike the Drive, will happen in-person in the Fall of 2021. Stay tuned for details.

Special thanks to Keating Law Offices for sponsoring the challenge as well as many other major Active Trans events over the years. (And congrats to Keating Law Offices on having three attorneys recently honored by Super Lawyers Magazine!).
