New law, "A new, pro-cycling law will soon explicitly legalize riding on the shoulder of roads for cyclists. The law will also make it legal for a driver to pass a cyclist by going across a solid no-passing centerline under certain, safe conditions. While the new measures will likely have little effect on the daily commuting lives of Chicago cyclists, both are key advancement for those in the city who sometimes ride to and from the suburbs, or enjoy longer bike travels west or downstate."

Does that mean we can ride on the Kennedy? 

Thanks Tania! Exciting. :-)

More information about the legislation can be found on the Ride Illinois website. Ride Illinois, the statewide bicycle advocacy organization, proposed the bill and pushed for its passing.

Nice work! This nearly makes up for the Second Worst License Plate Design Ever fiasco.
