Hey Tony.  Thanks very much and I am sure Ross (the poster artist) appreciates it too.  However, this IS the bike swap this year, and Active Trans WILL be there, however they couldn't run it this year.  We decided to try to pick up the ball and run with it so the swap could still happen.  Hopefully you'll make it out and we'll see you there.

Cheers - Lee

Poster is awesome. No bike swap this year? What is the story with that? ATA too busy pushing the BRT?

Comment by Lisa Curcio on December 18, 2013 at 7:42pm

Thanks for fixing it Lee.  Membership: done.

Lisa - So sorry!  Default setting was for tax and shipping.  It has been corrected.

John - Just a small group of cyclists that want to do something active for cycling in Chicago.  No website yet.  Our immediate priority was to organize the Bike Swap when we heard there wasn't going to be one this year.  We'll see more soon I am sure!

Dan - Thanks!  Credit Ross Felten with its awesomeness.

Who's involved with the CBC? Got a website or anything yet?

Comment by Lisa Curcio on December 18, 2013 at 8:40am

Hey, Lee.  Group sounds good.  Not to be picky and cheap, (well, actually yes, to be picky and cheap) tax and shipping?

Comment by Lee Diamond on December 18, 2013 at 8:02am

A new group forming to promote bicycles as a mode of transportation in Chicago and surrounding burbs.
