Let’s be honest: Chicagoans get their bikes stolen more often than Liam Neeson’s family members get kidnapped in the Taken franchise. Here are the mistakes bike theft victims make and how to avoid them!
If we have to choose whether to devote resources to solving violent crimes or bike thefts, the choice is obvious. With that said, some are wondering why Chicago can’t have adequate resources devoted to both.
A small, portable library has been stolen in Logan Square.
A 29-year-old man was riding a bike in the 0-100 block of East 120th Place about 8:45 p.m. when an unknown shooter approached on foot, opened fire, and fled.
Leonard Ratajczyk, 83, was hit while riding his bike in the 7800 block of West Irving Park Road in the Dunning neighborhood.
An 11-year-old boy died Monday, five days after he was hit by a car while riding his bicycle a block away from his Northwest Side home.

If you’re from out of town, it’s an even better and quicker way to see the city.
The state of Illinois will now begin tracking so called “dooring” crashes involving bicyclists and opened doors from parked cars.
