Last week in Chicago big city advocacy groups met to discuss bicycling issues that affect big cities. A big topic of discussion focused around challenges in the next Congress, specifically the transportation authorization bill and the climate change issue.
Secondly was a brainstorming session on joint campaign ideas, bike for your independence and bike the vote in November. Stay tuned for more details as these campaigns are launched.
