Global Activism: Revisiting His Wheels International

Global Activist Alice Teisan of His Wheels International will update us on her work helping people with disabilities adjust to their challenges through bike technology. A former nurse at Rush Hospital, Alice was an avid cyclist before being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She then channeled her passion for bicycling into helping others. His Wheels International recycles old bicycles to send overseas. Alice will also tell us about the Chicago Unconventional Bike Expo (CUBE) on October 2-4, 2015. It’s a show for “recumbent tricycles, quadracycles, folding cycles, tandems, velomobiles, transporters, electrical bikes, special needs bikes, collectibles, cargo bikes, trailers, customized designs and accessories".
