CHICAGO -- Around the city, a new path is being taken.

Katie Flores and her 3-year-old Elliott are among the many Saturday in McKinley park, taking to the streets, on two wheels -- sometimes three.

It’s the 12th year Alderman George Cardenas has hosted the biking event, but for the first time, a new bike lane is in place on 39th Street, part of a plan to expand the way Chicago gets around.

Just two weeks ago, the 606 bike path opened up neighborhoods on the West Side to each other, uninterrupted.

Saturday’s event is a small but important offshoot of the overall plan, including education for kids in the city -- and the option to open up a dialogue between neighbors, the way it used to be.
