The second annual Cargo Bike Roll Call will take place Saturday, June 9, at West Town Bikes.
The purpose of Cargo Bike Roll Call is to meet other people who like bikes. It's really just a party and people who like riding or carrying cargo (kids, groceries, book bags) attend. It's a chance to ride other people's cargo bikes, gawk, and learn about all the ways people carry stuff.
This family-friendly event coincides with Kidical Mass earlier in the day, at 10:30 AM starting in Palmer Square Park. http://chicagokidicalmass.org/
Sponsors this year include (so far):
The official website for this event (and this movement) is http://cargobikerollcall.tumblr.com
I am looking for additional monetary donations to cover the cost of food, drinks, and the venue. Please donate online directly to West Town Bikes (add "cargo bike roll call" to the project/memo field).
The Streets for Cycling open house downtown is 10 AM to 4 PM today.
