This group does not have any discussions yet.
I'll be there.
Save the dates for next month's public outreach meetings for south side bike routes:
Rise and shine Family... Today, is the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Holiday. Today, we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. King. Today, we dream, we imagine, we build, we create. Today is our day. Today belongs to us. Today belongs to our movement. Today, we symbolically ride bicycles to pay homage to our ancestor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Let's ride...
We have made the decision to cancel the bike ride and stewardship portions of the event tomorrow due to a windchill advisory until 12pm tomorrow and dangerously frigid, cold temperatures throughout the day. Our first priority is keeping our extended community safe and our second priority is providing an enjoyable experience. We are confident we are all better served by rescheduling both the ride and the stewardship activity.
PLEASE NOTE: We are still hosting the event tomorrow, with a Meet & Greet at 9am and the Program at 10am at the National A. Philip Randolph Pullman Porter Museum. We will drive together in a caravan over to Big Marsh for a brief visit to the park at 11am. Then, REI will provide lunch back at the Museum. While there, we will also enjoy a lively discussion about Slow Roll Chicago's homage to Dr. King through our work to achieve mobility as a civil right, advance a policy priority around bike equity, and utilize bicycles as vehicles for social justice in Chicago.
Special Note: We are in for a cold day on Monday morning for this ride. Riders are strongly advised to dress warmly by wearing multiple layers. We recommend wearing warm head, face, & neck coverings, warm outer gloves with a second pair of liner gloves, double up on warm socks and wear long johns or tights. Warm boots are highly suggested. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Click on the link below for REI's expert advice for how to stay warm in the winter. This ride may be curtailed or canceled in the event weather or road conditions will cause the ride to be unsafe. In the event the bike ride is canceled, we will still host our program at 10am to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King. In addition, we may still visit Big Marsh by driving to the park. For detailed updates over the weekend, we will post here on social media and on our website linked below.
