Mayor Emanuel Bikes with CIW Lab Participants
|About a dozen people biked with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel the first day of Chicago Ideas Week.|
|The experience was a 2013 CIW Lab.|
“There are 325 parks,” Emanuel told the group. “We’re adding 125 to 127 more acres, which is the equivalent to five Millennium Parks…We do big bold things (in Chicago), never small.”
|The group was given a history lesson along the route to lunch.|
The group’s ride ended at Revolution Brewing at 2323 N. Milwaukee Ave., where everyone enjoyed lunch. Rishi Shah, 27, said the best part of the day was being so close to the mayor.
