WBEZ asks this question and Julie Hochstadter answers. For those of you who are not from Chicago, brief introductions: WBEZ is my beloved Chicago Public Radio, Julie is co-owner of The Chainlink and all-around awesome woman.
Julie’s take on the question: basically, bicycling is a political statement even if you don’t intend it to be because you’re doing something out of the norm. Also, you’re saving the world. ;) But bicycling is also fun, practical, safe and fast.
I cannot embed the story, so read and listen here. The audio is only 3 minutes long.
What do you think: is bicycling political?
