The Chicagoland Bicycle Federation has announced its new name: Active Transportation Alliance. A while ago, the organization's mission was expanded beyond bicycle advocacy to include pedestrian and transit advocacy, encompassing a full range of sustainable transportation alternatives.
I think this is a natural progression, promoting improved options for doing more without cars and living healthier lives. If you're not familiar with the organization, check out the web site and try some of our events, including Bike the Drive. You may find some better ways to get around the city and meet some new friends.
