Bike to Work Week starts this Saturday June 8. The week-long cycling celebration offers city-wide programming and culminates in the Bike to Work Rally, a high octane gathering of thousands of bike enthusiasts in the heart of downtown Chicago at Daley Plaza. WBEZ team leader Jerome McDonnell blogs about the competition all week and starts by laying down the gauntlet.
Worldview talks with Michael Madero, assistant coach for the University of Chicago's men's soccer team, about the upcoming 2012 European Championships. Then we hear about Argentina's new gender identity law, which allows individuals to legally change their gender without any kind of medical procedure. And, Jerome confronts his new nemesis as Bike to Work Week begins in Chicago.
