The greatest city on Earth needs a new mayor. Lori Lightfoot is feeling the wrath of one of Chicago’s toughest communities: bikers. And by bikers, we mean cyclists. The two-wheel-brigade is coming down on Chicago’s mayor after she and her XL SUV’s took up the bike lane for 10 minutes while she nibbled on something sweet from Roeser’s.
“It is just egregious,” said Christina Whitehouse, founder of Bike Lane Uprising. “It wasn’t an emergency, and there are safe alternatives. But she went to park in the bike lanes where a safe parking place is available, showing that she would endanger the lives of Chicagoans for some doughnuts.”
