After we alerted you that 42nd Ward Ald. Brendan Reilly was threatening to force the removal of the Kinzie Street protected bike lane, you responded in a big way.
More than 1,400 Chicagoans from 43 different wards took up our call to action to save the Kinzie protected bike lane. (If you haven’t already, you can still take action here.)
Both online and on the streets, people are speaking out. In just a couple of hours on two separate days, our street team talked to more than 200 people at the intersection of Kinzie and Milwaukee.
Support for keeping and improving the existing bike lane on Kinzie was overwhelming. And it wasn’t just the folks on bikes. We heard from dozens of supportive drivers and pedestrians as well.
People understand protected bike lanes...
