Share 'Should the entire Chicago community start biking on the left side of the street?'
I would like to propose the idea of changing the side of the street we ride on.
Biking on the left you can:
-See oncoming traffic. No surprises from fast cars in the bike lane behind you.
-See people in parked cars, and they can see you. You're less likely to get doored.
-Even if they do open their door it would be a glancing blow, and not a deadly jam onto the sharp edge of the door.
