We would like to virtually introduce our keynote speaker for our Day of Dialogue and Demonstration: Ms. Angela Ford.
Angela Ford is the owner of TAG Properties, a Sustainable Real Estate consulting firm and founder of the nonprofit TAG Foundation focused on sustainable programing in the urban community. She, like so many of us, retired her bicycle at the age of 16 when she got her driver’s license. Her peer group associated bike riding with playful youth. She returned to bicycling as an adult 18 years later when her son needed to learn to ride immediately for a school trip. For the last eight years, Angela’s primary mode of transportation is her bicycle! She is committed to promoting bike riding for health and wellness. Her current project is the one-day event and donation of 500 bicycles to youth in Bronzeville in May 2014.
We are so excited for her to be an integral part of Women Bike Chicago’s Day of Dialogue and Demonstration because not only are her accomplishments inspiring and message true, but she is a wonderful lady.
Come meet Angela and hear what she has to say about women biking in the city, next month at our Second Annual Women Bike Chicago’s Women on Wheels: A Day of Dialogue and Demonstration, Saturday April 12, 9 AM to 2 PM in Dvorak Park in Pilsen. Check out our EventBrite page and register today.
