About this event:
Julie’s true passion is biking, so it makes sense that her digital presentation will cover the effects of travel and cycling in her life: traveling on her bike across Israel for peace, her involvement in the bike community of Chicago, the transition of riding as a child to farmers markets with her Dad to later giving her Dad the inspiration to commute on his bike 38 miles round trip to work. Along the way, her interest in cycling grew: traveling to Israel for two Hazon/Arava rides, riding in the Chicago Critical Mass, the Jewish women’s velo group, Bike Winter, and more. Julie is a year-round cyclist, and runs The Chainlink (www.thechainlink.org), a one stop shop resource and social network for Chicagoland cyclists (with almost 10K members). The mission is simple: Connecting people and communities through cycling. The site helps cyclists of all types, including racers, casual riders, advocates, families, and everything in between, find local rides and routes, connect with other cyclists and share information.
