What brings you to The Chainlink?
Hoping to connect with and learn from other Chainlink members on how we can improve conditions for cycling in Chicago and across the state.
I simply love to ride, mostly for transportation. Educating cyclists and motorists, encouraging others to ride more, and advocating for cyclists around the state is what I now do for a living. As of October 7th 2019, I am the new executive director of Ride Illinois!
A few other noteworthy details:
• certified as a League Cycling Instructor in 2009
• president of the Friends of Cycling in Elk Grove since 2012
• born and raised on the NW side, now living in the NW burbs
• life-long cyclist and bike commuter
My other websites (twitter, facebook, pinterest, Google+, blogs, etc.):
Yeah, I'm good at planning a bike ride, not always good at following through however. I need a cool ride photo like yours... Someone I knew took some nice photos last year but they were lost when his computer crashed.
