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

Blue Island City Council bikes to work!


Blue Island's Mayor Don Peloquin looks like he was born to ride his vintage Raleigh…in a suit and tie, holding his folder for Tuesday night's city council meeting.

Heck, the entire city council and the city employees who rode to the meeting last night looked like they'd been waiting for this moment to show everyone what Blue Island really is…the biking-est bike commuter town in Chicagoland.

Thanks again to Active Trans suburban program sponsor Saris, whose portable bike racks once again helped make great bicycling moments a whole lot easier.
