A little late on my southern-good-luck-collard-greens. Happy New Second Day of the Year! The greens are saying 2013 will be sweet and spicy.
Who would have thought we would have a 2 way protected bike lane in the middle of downtown Chicago? Both slightly bizarre and surprisingly quaint, I’m relieved to have a safer commute home in the evening. I daresay it’s even relaxing, especially with the holiday lights this time of year.
I went to the kick-off press conference on Dec. 14th featuring several of the #bikeCHI folks, Gabe Klein, Mayor Rahm, and a crowd of journalists. Someone joked the media posse was bigger than the bike posse.
Afterward there was an impromptu ride up and down the lane. I’m hooked. How could anyone resist these nighttime views of the Calder in front of the Loop Post Office?
