Logan Square Bike Jam has been rescheduled!
Now on Sunday we Jam for Protected Bike Lanes and the Farmers Market
Hello friends. Due to inclement weather and high temps we have decided to move our Logan Square Bike Jam to Sunday at 5:30pm (6pm roll). We will meet at the Logan Square Monument. Together we will ride at ~4mph. All wheels welcome!
More about the Jam…
Robust community inputters! We are tired of the City drawing up plans that don't do enough to protect vulnerable road users.
Even worse? When they consider it and toss out protected lanes because...parking? It's challenging?
Unacceptable! It's time to jam it up.
The city is developing plans for a refurbished Logan Square Blue Line station... including bike lanes on Milwaukee to Belmont.
While the city did consider adding protected bike lanes, those plans were abandoned after "robust community input".
To top it all off, the "robust" community input comprised of 30 people. 13 of which said they wanted protected lanes vs 10 who said dashed lanes were enough.
Fatality and injury data is clear, dashed lanes aren't enough.
Even CDOT designs show a truck in the dashed bike lane!!
Pushing aside the concerns that vulnerable road users have over traffic violence is unconscionable as drivers continue to kill people at record numbers.
88 people have been killed so far this year. Over 150 ppl in 2022. We need to build better infrastructure.
