Are the roads wide enough for both?
If you've had it with cyclists who blow off stop signs or car drivers who hog the road, don't miss Thursday's Chicago Live show at Chicago Theater. Here's the note I just got from Chicago Live executive producer, Lara Weber:
I wanted to make sure you and your readers were in on what promises to be a great segment at this Thursday's Chicago Live! (that's the weekly stage and radio show the Tribune produces over at Chicago Theatre).
Tribune transportation columnist Jon Hilkevitch will be on stage moderating a discussion we're calling "The Road Rage Debate: Cars vs. Bicycles" and will be joined by Ethan Spotts of the Active Transportation Alliance and Brian Steele of the Chicago Department of Transportation -- two experts who have spent years entrenched in the battles between motorists and bicyclists in the city.
As a (fair-weather) bike commuter, I'm excited to hear what they both have to say. And I know your readers have been passionate on these traffic issues too, so I'd like to invite them to join our studio audience on Thursday.
In addition to the Road Rage Debate, they'll be treated to host Rick Kogan, comedy from the Second City and more. The full lineup is at Chicagolive.com.
Readers of Julie's Health Club are invited to use the discount code LIVE for 50 percent off tickets to this week's show. Chicago Live! is at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Chicago Theatre Downstairs. Audience members can meet and mingle with show guests and cast after the show, when I'm sure the transit discussion will continue.
Hope to see you there too!
Lara Weber, Chicago Live
