Manor Avenue on Chicago’s North Side is already a popular route for biking and walking, but its popularity is expected to soar once pieces of the Chicago River Trail fall into place to the south.
The half-mile long street — which runs at an angle between West Montrose Avenue and West Lawrence Avenue in the Ravenswood Manor neighborhood — hosts a handful of businesses, as well the Francisco Brown Line L station, while also connecting several parks — most notably Horner Park to the south and Ronan and River Parks to the north.

I ride my bike.
When I hear about a person killed while riding their bike, I think of the proverb, “there but for the grace of God go I.” I know a lot of other people have the same reaction.
Even among strangers, there is a deep and difficult-to-verbalize connection to these tragedies. In some way, we’re a two wheeled tribe, more diverse than most characterizations by the media.
