Bike Lane Uprising, a volunteer effort among Chicago bicyclists to fight for safer bike lanes, held a “Day of Service” last Sunday. The day was a giant succeess. The “Day of Service” involved Chicago bicyclists volunteering to “adopt” a segment of Chicago’s bike lanes. The volunteers then documented the bike lane conditions and then submitting their findings to Bike Lane Uprising. All of this data will be presented to the Chicago Department of Transportation for the purpose of helping them identify which bike lanes need improvement. A remarkable 90% of Chicago’s bike lanes were adopted by volunteers.

Keating Law Offices co-hosted the event. The “Day of Service” began at the firm’s West Town Office located at 825 North Milwaukee Avenue where volunteers had a meet-up prior to hitting the streets. The firm’s West Town Office is in addition to the firm’s main office in the Loop. The day ended with an after-party at Logan Square’s Rocking Horse where the volunteers met to recap the day and celebrate the success of the “Day of Service.”
