ACTION ALERT: Support protected bike lanes in the Loop!

On Sunday, Mayor Emanuel announced that the City plans to install the first protected bike lane in the Loop later this year. /The two-way bikeway on Dearborn Street would connect the Kinzie Street protected bike lane to Polk Street, providing a safe route through the middle of the Loop and improving access to downtown for both the North Side and South Side.

This is an incredibly exciting moment for biking in Chicago! Yet, we know we'll need many more announcements like this to truly make biking in Chicago a safe and easy option for everyone. And with the anti-bike crowd calling protected bike lanes bunk and a giant waste of money, we need your voice now.

TAKE ACTION: Support protected bike lanes in the Loop!

Please sign our petition asking decision-makers to follow through on plans to build protected bike lanes in the Loop and achieve 100 miles of protected bike lanes across the city by 2015.
