Rahm Emanuel Plans To Take Chicago To The Top Of The Bicycle Food Chain
10th best city in the U.S. for bicycling. 10th! That stinks. We can do better than that and apparently Chicago's mayor-to-be, Rahm Emanuel, thinks so as well. Yesterday, he announced his vision for the future of the city's cycling infrastructure. Noting that Chicago, "Continues to lag far behind may large cities," he plans to see to it that our bike lane network is the best in the U.S., including making Chicago "a pioneer in the creation and expansion of protected bike lanes." Portland, Minneapolis, watch your backs, and don't be surprised if you find dead fish in your mailboxes. Here is a link Rahm Emanuel's plan for expanding Chicago's bicycle network.
