|Chapter 1||Bikeway Network: "Bikeways" are streets and trails specifically designed for bicycle travel. Bikeways help bicyclists feel comfortable riding, whether on streets with heavy motor-vehicle traffic or on off-street trails. Surveys consistently indicate that providing bikeways is the most effective way to encourage bicycling.|
|Objective 5||Help current and potential bicyclists choose safe, convenient routes.|
Develop and widely distribute a new Lakefront Trail map.
The Lakefront Trail is the most popular bikeway in Chicago. A trail map is a cost-effective way to help bicyclists and other trail users select the best routes and promote trail safety. A map of the trail is not readily available, however. Seek private sector sponsorship in order to reduce costs.
|Peformance Measure||Publish a minimum of 50,000 copies of a Lakefront Trail map per year, beginning in 2007.|
|Tracker Notes||The map has been created but I don't believe 50,000 copies of it are being printed and distributed annually. The map is graciously available online.|
