Chicago's two-wheeled revolution

With Mayor Rahm Emmanuel saying he’s committed to making the "City that Works" the most bike-friendly in the country, Chicago is experiencing a two-wheeled revolution. That’s music to Greg Borzo’s ears, author of Where to Bike: Chicago, a guide to Chicagoland’s best cycle routes. Borzo joined WBEZ to talk about the pleasures and challenges of being a bike rider in Chicago.

Also, WBEZ took to the streets to find out Chicagoans' favorite cycle routes, and heard stories of cycle accidents and praise for the new protected cycle routes.
