After Jahn death, bike advocates say cyclists must be careful and infrastructure must help

In the wake of the bicycle crash Saturday in Campton Hills that killed world-renowned architect Helmut Jahn, area bicycle safety activists said more work can be done to design intersections and roads to better accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians, even in rural and exurban areas.

According to Campton Hills Police Chief Steven Millar, witnesses said Jahn was riding his bicycle on Old LaFox Road, a side street, and was struck by a car after he rolled through a stop sign while attempting to turn left onto Burlington Road. After Jahn was struck by the first car, which was heading south on

USA Swimming Announces Split-Site 2021 Speedo Summer Championships

USA Swimming confirmed on Monday plans for the 2021 Speedo Summer Championships. The meet will take place from August 3-7 and be split into East and West sites.

The meet is being referred to specifically as “Summer Championships” and not “National Championships” because the results won’t be officially combined into a single ranking.

  • West – William Wollett Jr. Aquatics Center, Irvine, California

This replaces the slot that typically houses a post-Olympic Games Summer National Championship meet. Historically, the U.S. Olympians have only rarely competed in that event, and with swimming concluding

The Knicks were not expected to be competitive during the 2020-21 NBA season.

The team was mired in a rebuild and had hired Tom Thibodeau in the offseason to be its new coach. This was the veteran’s third stop on the head coaching circuit, and it was expected that he would need time to turn things around. After all, the Knicks posted a 21-45 record during the COVID-19-shortened 2019-20 season, the seventh-worst mark in the NBA.

Raised bike lanes to be installed in Chicago to better protect cyclists

If Copenhagen can install raised bike lanes to prevent motorists from invading space reserved for cyclists, why can’t Chicago try it?

Transportation Commissioner Gia Biagi asked essentially that question on Tuesday during a virtual address to the Rotary Club of Chicago, then answered it in a way that delighted her fellow cyclists.

Biagi noted Chicago’s cycling plan is “a decade old.” It’s high-time to “update the technology, think differently about it and get some of those measures and policies in place where we can do the carrot and the stick at the same time,” she said.

College Football’s top 10 stadiums by fan atmosphere

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic threatening to take the sport away, college football came and went this fall and, for the most part, did so without a hitch. Once the schedules were altered and the plan was set in motion for how to play safely, the games were played. But there was one thing that just wasn’t the same.

The risk of having full stadiums in 2020 was too big for schools to feel comfortable playing through and so attendance at games was either limited or eliminated altogether. And while it might have been leaning on the safe side
