Chicago Meets Copenhagen with Aldermen Osterman and Pawar

UPDATED Sept. 27: Due to the overwhelming interest in this event, we are moving the slideshow presentation down the block to the Swedish American Museum to ensure everyone can see the slideshow, and we'll walk to the Hopleaf afterwards for socializing! Details updated below.

Park your bike at the brand new bike corrals in front of the Hopleaf and across the street from the Swedish American Museum, and join Active Trans, Ald. Harry Osterman (48th Ward) and Ald. Ameya Pawar (47th Ward) for a very special evening to celebrate an exciting year for biking in Chicago.

Earlier this year, the Bikes Belong Foundation took Aldermen Osterman and Pawar to Copenhagen along with representatives from the Chicago Department of Transportation to see how one of the world's most bicycle-friendly cities works. Our evening will include a presentation with a slideshow. The aldermen will be joined by Scott Kubly from CDOT to share observations from the trip.

8-9PM socializing at the Hopleaf (upstairs bar), 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago
