    Just curious: why is Jennifer Pritzker described as a “bike advocate”? I know she’s done work on historical restoration of buildings, but I’ve never heard of her in relation to bike advocacy. The Crains article just said she likes to ride. Nothing about advocacy.

  • She regularly donates to Active Trans — she sponsored the regional bike map one year, which is why that edition included military history sites. Plus, she donated $5K to a bike-friendly candidate for 50th Ward alderman a few years ago, and sometimes rides in Critical Mass.
