Hurrah for Chicago's First Protected Bike Lane!

The First, But Not the Last!

Chicago's mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has said that he wants to make his city more bike-friendly, and to help with that he has pledge that 100 miles of protected bike lanes would be built during his first term. The first of those is now open to the public, and as far as I can tell, it has been a great success so far! Our friendly Elizabeth from StreetFilms has shot the video above about it. It's great and should be shown to the mayor and urban planners of all cities around North-America!
