The purpose of the Streets for Cycling Plan 2020 is to identify a network of innovative bicycle facilities that will encourage all Chicagoans to use their bikes to get around their neighborhoods.

For each area, we reviewed the existing bicycling conditions by identifying destinations, barriers, gaps in existing bikeways, and assets.
