I love to hear about all of these plans to make cities more cyclist-friendly.

Too many people have been conditioned to believe that a bicycle is a child's toy or that cycling is simply a recreational activity. Once you "grow up", an adult uses a car to get around. We need to break out of that mindset and start to see the bicycle as a viable transportation option, not to be ridiculed, but admired.

Thanks for sharing Cher!

Since laying claim to the title Murder Capital, don't believe this encouragement is a smart or safe idea for those living in the West and South side neighbors of the city, do you? Really?

Bikes have always been big in Chicago. I don't drive but I don't ride bikes either. The buses have racks on the front for bikes. You can take bikes on the subways but only at certain times. There are more bike paths on the streets all the time. I wish I could ride a horse here but I use public trans. My friend moved here from Seattle. She's a bike commando. The traffic is afraid of her!
