    As inspiring as the example of Amsterdam is, I think we in Chicago need to keep in mind the differences between Amsterdam in 1973 and Chicago today (i.e., at the time that these cities got serious about bicycle infrastructure, respectively).  Preface:  Amsterdam is my favorite city in the world…
    In Amsterdam (and the Netherlands generally) the population is fairly homogeneous, with a sense of community.  In 1973, most residents (I’ll bet) already used a bike for transportation at least occasionally.  They could agree that more bike infrastructure was good for society; they could agree that driving a car should be expensive.
    In Chicago today, practically nobody has ever used a bicycle for transportation.  We have little sense of community.  Bike infrastructure is, to most people, a perk for the enjoyment of a few athletic types.
    So, while in Amsterdam it is true that separated bike paths increased ridership, I am not so sure that it can happen here – it’s the chicken/egg issue.  Before we can get public support for the network of separated paths that we need, we need to get more people on bikes.  Maybe the best strategy is to concentrate on bike boulevards (maybe not calling them that).  Property owners who see the value of their homes rising from being on such a street will support it. Cycling will be encouraged by it.  And it can be sold to the general public as beneficial for “real” people, not just cyclists.

       Try Upgrade Cycles at Chicago and Milwaukee – I believe they stock Chrome bags with Chicago flag patches.

    Have you seen the monstrous new purpose-built taxi cabs rambling around the city lately? They’re called the MV-1, made by the company that brought us Hummers, and may a requirement for city taxi fleets. I’d love to see you dig a little deeper into the fate of these behemoths.

    I just wanted to share with you my recent blog post about the CTA and Metra bike policies. What do you think about starting a campaign against their bicycle policies?

    • http://www.stevevance.net/ Steven Vance

      I’d start a campaign in the opposite direction: one that wants expanded and modified bike policies, but isn’t against it.

    Steve,
    I noticed that the intersection of Milwaukee and Wood was resurfaced this past week. That wouldn’t seem to bode well for the complete redo that you referenced here a month ago. I pray the project is still on. Do you have any insight?
