Dear Friends and Biking Enthusiasts-

Hi! Can you smell that fresh air wafting this way? The thaw is in and more Chicagoans will be waking up to the joys of getting outside and on their bikes. We want to help them do it!

We thought you might like to be involved in an advisory capacity in the planning of an upcoming day of bike advocacy and a Green (Bike) Tour of various sustainable institutions and community based projects within the Humbolt Park & Logan Square neighborhoods.

Below are preliminary details of the events (as currently developed) but we are looking to you for your expertise and experience in the biking community and sustainability fields. This is a flat-out request for you to join in the planning and implementing of this workshop & ride.  Obviously the perspectives and experience of the volunteers will be what makes this event a whopping success.

Spring Green Bike Tour

May 1st- save that date!

We are looking for individuals:

  • comfortable with biking/leading/assisting tours on Chicago’s city streets
  • with basic knowledge of bike repairs, maintenance and bike safety  issues
  • with ideas about “green institutions and locations” to visit on the route of our tour
  • who may not have the above backgrounds but would like to get involved in supporting a great community-based social event in our neighborhoods…

Please respond to me if you would like more info about the event (this would not yet mean you are making any solid commitments, just getting details) and we can trade info and ideas and see if you’d like to get more involved.

More details about the Tour Ride is at the tour homepage. Or join our chainlink forum for the latest organizing discusssions.

Or, please RSVP if you’d like to join our first planning meeting which will be:

Info Meeting:  To Be Determined: Late March /Early April

At the meeting we will make decisions about the event planning and see how folks would like to be involved. Hope you can make it and would love to have you be a part of this event.

Also feel free to sign up now- we have capped the tour at 35 reserved slots!
Just email me back if you want your space reserved on the tour.

Let me know if you are interested in attending the info meeting on the 25th!
