Neighborhood Bikeways Campaign

Would you like to see Humboldt Park become more bike friendly?

The Active Transportation Alliance has started the Neighborhood Bikeways Campaign with the goal of creating 100 miles of protected bikeways in the City by 2015 to make cycling a safer and more accessible transportation option. Chicago recently got its first protected bike lane on West Kinzie Street, where the City installed a barrier between the car and bike lanes, along with bike boxes at intersections, which give cyclists a safe place to wait for the light to change.

If you're interested in finding out how to get involved in your community or would like to show your support for the campaign, sign up here.
