How Can We Make Chicago More Bike Friendly?

NACTO's 'Cities for Cycling' Meets in the Windy City The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO ), which recently authored a great urban bikeway design guide , held a meet of its 'Cities for Cycling' project in Chicago. Experts and activists from the city and from the rest of the country met to share ideas on how to make Chicago a more bike-friendly city. Our friends at Streetfilms were there and interviewed many of the participants.It's really great to see so much cooperation and sharing of best practices. It'll make things happen much faster than if each city had to individually reinvent the bike wheel on its own... Kudos to NACTO and all of those who participated!
