On Friday, August 18, nearly 20 attendees took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a bike ride (for 2 CM credits)! Guided by some of the experts who have helped greatly expand Chicago’s bike network (which now consists of over 225 miles) in recent years, tour-goers were able to experience a range of innovative neighborhood-scale bicycle solutions from Argyle Street, the city’s first Shared Street, in Uptown to a newly installed ‘contra-flow’ bike lane through the heart of Andersonville. Other stops along the 5 mile tour included examples of innovative bike lane connections between dead-end streets, on-street bike corrals requested by popular restaurants, and discussion of separated cyclist and jogger paths to be installed along Chicago’s Lakefront Trail.
Thank you to our guides Tim Gustafson of Alta Planning + Design and David Smith of T.Y. Lin International and to CDOT and Divvy Bikes for their generous donation of bikes for the tour!
