Today marks the final day of Active Commute Week, put on by the Greater Grand Rapids Bicycle Coalition as part of National Bike To Work Week.

With there still being opportunity to participate in the challenge, and a celebration set for Sunday afternoon, Tom Tilma and Tricia Boot of the local coalition are in studio today to talk about all the ways to still get involved. They will provide some information on how to make active commuting a year-round effort, and about all the work of Greater Grand Rapids Bicycle Coalition.



Michigan music featured in this episode of Catalyst Radio is from The Appleseed Collective’s new release Young Love. The song is “Don’t Know Me.”
