    I might suggest that police education is important as well (though I can’t say one way or another whether our police are well educated relative to cycling). Regardless, it looks like Chicago also thin… Click to read more in the Forum >>>…

    NEWS: Why not make biking on sidewalks legal in the suburbs?

    I tend to agree with the main concept here… that suburban arterials need bike infrastructure badly… but cars go SO fast on those roads, it’s impossible to feel safe even in a bikelane that is just paint. A physical barrier (curb, bollards, etc) is needed, or an cycling addition on the side of sidewalks.  Many […]

    OH YEAH! How I learned to love cycling my way to work

    I’ll be honest, and I hate to admit this, but I used to be that person that perpetually ran five minutes late—to everything. I’d do my best to be timely, but in many circumstances, I just couldn’t seem to make it to my commitments on time. A few years ago my brother became a bicycle […]
