Effective this month, I will be representing the south side at the Mayor's Bike Advisory Council. Our next meeting is on Wed. 9/10. Do you have any concerns or ideas that you would like me to present at the meeting regarding south side bike facilities and other issues affecting cycling on the south side?

I'd be grateful if you could submit any immediate concerns or ideas to me by NOON on Saturday 9/6 at

Volunteers needed for Four Star Bike & Chow, which is happening on the south side this year.  If you do 6 hrs or more of volunteer work before the date of the event, you can earn a free registration for the event. Route marking volunteers are especially needed.

Ciclovamos, Pilsen/Little Village's newest bike advocacy organization, has been asked to help support this Saturday's 25th Ward Night Ride:

by providing ride marshals.  Hours would be roughly 7 to 10.  Familiarity with Pilsen streets and desire to help grow bicycling on the near SW side a plus.

Please write to or reply here.

Three weeks from now, there's a positive south side ride happening. Would you like to be part of it? The Urban Black Renaissance organization is partnering with Red Bike & Green on the Englewood Back to School parade, and they're looking for folks from other groups to join in.  I'm looking forward to being part of it.  Click here for more info and to RSVP.  I hope you'll join the ride.

Hi fellow South Side Riders.  Major Taylor has a 6 pm after work ride today, and a 9 am ride on Saturday.  Both are departing from La Rabida.  Check out the events page in the calendar for more details.

Greetings Pilsen/Little Village cyclists!

Please consider yourself invited and encouraged to attend the inaugural meeting of the Pilsen/Little Village bicycle alliance, this Sunday from 4 to 5:30 PM at Harbee's Tavern, 1345 W 18th Street (quiet back room.)*

The purpose of the meeting is twofold:

1) To see who's interested in having an active organization (PLVBA or whatever you'd like to name it) to work long-term for better conditions for cyclists in our part of town, and what sort of vision we may collectively have.
A possible mission/purpose of such an organization can be viewed here:

2) To give Maggie Melin of Active Transportation Alliance opportunity to introduce a new City of Chicago walking/biking/transit initiative called "Go Pilsen."

No RSVP necessary but it would be good to get an idea of who's hoping to attend-- let me know individually or per phone/text at 773 710-4143.

If you'd like to attend to talk about your own initiative, get petitions signed, etc. I'd definitely prefer that you got in touch first.


Howard K

*Pending final confirmation with owner-- slight chance of location change-- should know before Sat 2/22.
