When you head out on your bike, you’re making the responsible decision to decrease your carbon footprint, to bolster your health, and to free-up our overly clogged roads. You also, however, take on an immense risk. When you take to your bike, there’s absolutely nothing to protect you – other than your safety gear – from the impact of an accident.
Chicago Embraces Cyclists
The City of Chicago encourages its citizens and visitors to bike. Over the last several years, many new bike paths have been created and more than 100 miles of bike lanes have been laid. Additionally, extensive construction projects have been implemented to reimagine entire streets in Chicago’s downtown Loop to better accommodate bikers. Many cyclists take advantage of these improvements by commuting to and from work – and more.
