The road ahead. 2012 was also the most active year for new bike lanes in Chicago, including this one on Lake Street at Rockwell. We expect many more miles in 2013 as well as the advancement and launch of other new transportation projects. Photo by Gabriel Michael. 

Grid Chicago launched in June 2011, so 2012 represents our first calendar year of blogging. What did we write? A lot. We, including our many contributors, wrote 353,487 words in 466 posts (an average of 38.3 per month). For comparison, Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead has 311,596 words. The table below lists the most popular posts (measured purely by page views in that month only) and the number of comments they received.

We also traveled a lot. The both of us, at different times, visited Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands. Between us we visited many states, including Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Utah, Colorado, Virginia, Oregon, and New York (we didn’t write about every visit, though).
