Roughly every three days, one person biking or walking is killed by someone driving a car in the Chicago region.

Work your advocacy muscle at Streetside Outreach training

You can make a difference in the way that people perceive biking, walking, and transit by becoming a trained Streetside Outreach volunteer.  Active Trans' needs as many trained members as possible to show up at commmunity events, bike events, and other streetside venues where we can spread the word about our movement for safe, convenient, and fun travel.  Come to a Streetside Outreach training session to refresh your air pumping, chain lubing and helmet fitting skills, polish your talking points on Active Transportation Alliance membership, and to learn how to positively engage other cyclists hungry for a better riding environment. 

We need more volunteers than ever to pull off this year's more than 30 outreach events during Bike to Work Week, June 15 through 19.
