Last Sunday, my daughter and I joined thousands of people on the Miller Lite Ride for the Arts to see in person just how great it would be to have a permanent bicycle and pedestrian route over the Hoan Bridge. It was wonderful to say the least.
Nobody was blown off the bridge, and everyone from the out of shape, to the elderly and the very young were able to pedal over the gentle 3.5% grade hill. No longer can anyone say it is too dangerous, difficult or windy to ride over our iconic bridge along the lakefront.
With the thousands of witnesses as proof and the preliminary engineering for the redecking of the bridge already under way, it is time to make a full court press to get a permanent bicycle and pedestrian path over the Hoan. If you have not done so already, please,take a few minutes from your busy day to sign the petition and contact your city, county and state elected officials to tell them you support permanent bicycle and pedestrian access over the Hoan Bridge.
