~For people seeking tips on bike commuting~
My friend, Maria, of PoCampo put together a nifty guide for National Bike Month on how to bike to work safely and arrive looking presentable.
I recommend that you check it out and – most importantly! – forward it on to anyone who may be interested in bike commuting. Spread the bike love! :-)
~For Chicagoans looking for fun ways to connect with other bicyclists in the area~
This Thursday, in collaboration with local bike advocacy brewers Spiteful Brewing and local bike-coffee shop Heritage Bicycles, Chicago’s Ride of Silence (organized by my friend Elizabeth) is hosting a pre-Ride Tribute Event to raise awareness of the Ride of Silence and bike safety. Come to Heritage Bikes on Thursday to chat and enjoy beer from 6-9 pm. The Ride of Silence is on May 15 this year.
On Sunday, PoCampo is leading a leisurely Mother’s Day ride along the lakefront in Chicago. I’ll be there! The ride will start at 11 a.m. with mimosas & juice at Cricket Hill (Montrose & Lakefront) and continue south to the free Spring Flower Show at Lincoln Park Conservatory. Feel free to bring the whole family!
Hope to see some of you there!
