Streetsblog is reporting heavily on the city’s announcement today to add 200 miles of bike lanes over the next three years. I’m all for it. But once again, Chicago is kicking everybody’s arse when it comes to urban amenities. The city has more than just bike lanes, but a large downtown space to securely lock them at Millennium Park. Most of the time when I don’t use my bike for transportation, it’s because I don’t want to risk having it stolen. Not to mention, I had a rather nasty tangle with a taxicab door over the summer WHILE I WAS IN A BIKE LANE. To that end, the city is also pledging to launch a bicycle awareness campaign. Can’t hurt. Might help.
