Car Free Day: Rally and Ride

by Break the Gridlock | 09/21/2010


Greetings, Carfree Chicago!

Hooray! Tomorrow, Wednesday Sept 22, is World Car Free Day. Break the Gridlock is celebrating with a rally and bike ride tomorrow night. The ride leaves at 6pm sharp from Daley Plaza and ends at 7pm at the Bike Winter kick-off meeting at the Billy Goat on Madison (1535 W.)

The idea is that we spread love and thanks for walkers, bikers, skaters, bladers, transit users, etc. downtown... and encourage the drivers hitting the highway ramps to join us next time. If you are feeling creative and/or loud, come prepared with your best car-freedom costumes and slogans.

Also, please take the Active Trans' car-free pledge. Even if you are already car-free, it is good to be counted. When you take the pledge, you show support for a less car-dependent future.
