DID YOU KNOW?

Chicago’s first protected bike lane on Kinzie Street increased ridership by 55 percent without increasing traffic congestion for cars.

  • Plan your route using a bicycle map of your community, if available.
  • Ride on streets with bike lanes and enough room to ride outside of the “door zone” when riding alongside parallel parked cars.
  • Consider riding on residential streets when starting out, even if they take you a bit out of the way.
  • Cross major streets at traffic signals.
