The Chainlink

Share your pics, videos, streets, stories of what you find in the bike lane of the non-bike variety that has an impact on your ride and/or your safety. I've decided to keep it a little more open ended - cars, snow, buses, garbage, cabs, etc. If they shouldn't be in the bike lane, go ahead and add it to this thread. Please be safe if you are taking pics or video! :-) 

My hope is that we can collectively build some evidence of what we see when riding in the city with the overall hope of better enforcement of "bikes only" and improving maintenance. 

Update: More Hashtags to Capture Vehicles in the Bike Lane

With popular hashtags:

#LaneSpreading (Chicago Bike Selling)

#ClearTheWay (ActiveTrans), there are many options to capture violations.

We think you should use ALL of them AND post your photos on The Chainlink. ;-)

147 N Canal St. I thought I'd take a different route home to see if it was any different. Lol. Same a**wipes everywhere. 311 report submitted.

Angela Park has been identified as the 39 year old cyclist who was killed yesterday when a driver of @LRSrecycles ran her over in Greektown. We are beyond sad. Beyond angry. Beyond wanting thoughts & prayers. We want ACTION. We want RESOLUTION. We want PREVENTION.

Please ensure all violations you have on your phones & cameras involving Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) @LRSrecycles is to our database ASAP. This company is a KNOWN BIKE LANE OFFENDER.

They have illustrated a culture of anti-cycling & risk for a long time. They're documented multiple times illegally using bike lanes for parking & housing dumpsters for months on end in bike lanes. Please report any additional violations to our database at

The more submissions we have to illustrate their disregard for safety the better.

Hilarious! I completely understand why they are doing this. Thanks again to construction...
