It's Winter Bike Challenge time! In its third year, this free event is produced by Active Transportation Alliance and runs from January 13-27.  Active Trans is a non-profit advocacy organization that works throughout  Chicagoland to improve conditions for cycling, walking and people using public transit.   

We’ve added a few new twists this year but stay true to the heart of the program – an opportunity for newbies to give winter cycling a try but also a chance for the more seasoned winter rider to mix it up.

Kick-off the challenge with the Winter Bike to Work Day Rally in Daley Plaza on January 13th from 6:30 – 8:00 AM. Stop by for free Dark Matter Coffee, Eli's cheesecake, give-a-ways from sponsors and a chance to mingle with other Winter Bike Challenge participants!
