EBC Meetings and Programs


EBC meets at 7:30 PM on the third Tuesday of every month in the
Ecology Center at the Ladd Arboretum, McCormick and Bridge Streets, Evanston

5/21- 7:30pm
Bike Lane Uprising by Christina Whitehouse

Bike Lane Uprising is a cyclist-led civic tech platform for reporting bike lane obstructions.  While many miles of bike lanes exist, they are often blocked by vehicles that use them as free parking.   Since launching over a year ago, over 7,000 bike lane obstructions have been submitted by cyclists in Chicago and 60 other cities to the database and have identified over 1,000 repeat offenders.  Volunteers work with local organizations, city departments, and companies to prevent obstructions resulting in safer public roadways for cycling.  Christina Whitehouse, founder, will share the story of how it got started, what it has accomplished, and plans for the future. 

   
6/18 - 7:30pm Cycling and the Law: Protecting Your Rights by Matt Johnson and Andrzej Brzoznowski
  Learn about bicycle law, what to do in the event of a crash from a legal perspective and how to determine whether you need to involve a lawyer after getting hit. A question and answer session will follow the presentation so attendees can ask questions regarding their own experiences on the road and discuss the law in Illinois as applied to cyclists. Matt and Andrzej are attorneys with the Freeman Kevenides Law Firm – a firm focused on representing and advocating for injured cyclists, and the Illinois representative for the nationwide Bike Law network of attorneys.

Eat Before We Meet
Both members and guests are invited to join club members for an informal dinner before club meetings at 6:00 PM at Dengeos, located on the southwest corner of Main and McCormick.
