I haven't seen any separated bike lanes O.o....
If I'm not mistaken, they were part of the Bike 2010 plan also.
In the Bike 2015 plan, the measure for raised lanes includes "Identify 3-5 potential locations by 2006". Does anyone know if this was done, and if so, what were the locations?
I feel like I remember riding on some lanes like that in Madison. At the very least Madison had seperated bike lanes around the university. Madison also has lights in the downtown area just for bikes, plus exceptions on one way streets for cyclists...not to mention a ton of off street bike trails. I think that would be a better inspiration than Chicago.
My Dad says they had separated bike lanes in Champaign at U of I since the seventies... So why does it take will 2010...15...20 here?
We'll have to see if the next mayor even bothers with the lip service to the bike community like Daley does. The next one may just flat out say bike 2015 is now bike never. Of course that is not all that different from daley anyway...
