More in the flood of bike news on this first day of bike month.
Chicagoans will get a look at the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 in a series of upcoming meetings.
Chicago DOT says the goal of the plan "is to identify roadways throughout the City for innovative bicycle facilities so that all Chicagoans, from children riding to school to senior citizens riding to the grocery store, can feel safe and comfortable bicycling on our streets."
"In addition to viewing the draft 2020 network, those attending the public meetings will see possible street treatments and proposed bike facilities, and hear about the remaining challenges and next steps for the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020."
