Summer is definitely heating up Chicago and the amount of bikes on the road is at its yearly high. Its been a very exciting season for cycling in Chicago and its great that the community is continually growing. New bike lanes are constantly being laid out (Milwaukee Avenue, anyone?) and we’ve gotten an awesome bike share program called Divvy up and running.
Here at Chicago Bike Buddies, we’ve matched almost 40 riders to volunteers that are helping with bike etiquette, safety, laws, routes and anything else that could be addressed. We’ve got a Board of Directors now, been featured in a DNAinfo article, gone a group ride and even got a Twitter account! CBB is growing and we’re having a great time doing it.
If you’re still thinking about riding but haven’t gotten to it yet, there couldn’t be a better time to start! Request a buddy and we’ll get your feet on those pedals and your wheels on the road. And we promise, you’ll have a great time!!
