Never Mind the Bollards. Here's the Ribbon Cutting!

Today at 11 a.m., at the intersection of Kinzie and Jefferson, the very first protected bike lane ever in the great City of Chicago will be officially opened with an amazing ribbon cutting ceremony.  Did you know that you are invited too? You know that you want to go! Please come.

Bring your children. Ride the lane together if you never have had a chance.

Celebrate as the whole city is invited to cheer our first giant leap towards the world class cycling city that we might become. Protected lanes are not just for strong seasoned commuters but for the kids, families and senior citizens of our very city to get out and ride everyday.  It's quite possible that all the news on the next lane will be revealed. You'll see the masterminds behind the "protected lane in no time " team.

Don't miss it. Grab your bike and come on down!


  1. I think it's spelled bollards. Regardless, CDOT is calling them "flexible delineators."
