On our Global Activism segment we meet Frederick "F.K." Day and Leah Missbach Day of World Bicycle Relief, started after the 2005 tsunami. They've seen how bikes can bring access to healthcare, education, and jobs. World Bicycle Relief has put well over 100,000 bikes into the hands of people who need them.
Only around 1% of Chicago residents bike regularly for transportation. Some cyclists see themselves as an embattled minority, fighting for a safe space on roads that were not designed with them in mind.
