A true "Bike Lane Uprising" took place on Lake Shore Drive today as cyclists took over the street. Since the Lakefront is still closed, we couldn't resist turning it into a music video. Did you ride LSD today? Remember the occasion with a piece of commemorative Bike Lane Uprising merch. 😂🤣 Lyrics have been added below #openthelakefront
There’s a trail I’d like to tell you about, lives in my home town
Lake Front Trail is what it’s called and it'll take you up and down
Pedalin on your bicycle, with the lake right by your side
Runners and walkers and families, help you ride on by.
Going to work, or going to play, help you ride on by.
And there ain’t no trail just like it
Anywhere I see
Away from noisey cars and trucks speeding on LSD.
Pedalin’ by on the Lake Front Trail, just where I wanna be.
No need to fill a car with gas, grab your bike and come on by
Never any traffic here, just happy to be outside
But Coronavirus came to town, and the mayor closed LFT
Nowhere to bike but on the road, with the cars flyin’ down the street
And the bike lanes suck cuz CDOT doesn’t care about you or me.
It's Friday night and we're staying home
Speeding cars outside your window makes you wanna scream.
Why can’t people who don’t drive have space to be free
Cuz Lightfoot CDOT and Biagi won’t give us open streets / We’re just
trying to spreeaaad wide outside, just give us open streets
