Help Streetsblog Chicago Raise $3K by New Year’s and You Could Win a Bike


As Kenny Rogers sang in “The Gambler,” you gotta know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em. And you can fold this nifty Link D8 when it’s time to stop pedaling and board a train, transit, taxi, ride-share, or a private car.

The Streetsblog network of transportation news sites will be raffling off this ride, generously donated by Tern Bicycles, to readers who donate by December 31, including contributions earmarked for Streetsblog Chicago. Currently, SBC is trying to raise $3,000 by New Year’s in order to get a head start on fundraising to make sure we can keep publishing in 2016. We’re currently funded until April.

Whether it’s lobbying for a more efficient Lake Shore Drive, reviewing the new Ventra App, checking out the Loop Link bus corridor, or unmasking the culprit behind the IDOT protected bike lane ban, you can count on Streetsblog Chicago to bring you the latest in hard-hitting transportation reporting. But we can’t do it alone — we need your support in order to continue covering the movement for safe, efficient, and vibrant streets in the Windy City.

Your tax-deductible donation will help keep Streetsblog Chicago rolling throughout the new year. Thanks for your support, and good luck in the raffle! With your help, we can keep pushing for more pedestrian “Islands in the Stream” of car traffic.
