Beginning last summer (or spring, maybe) Milwaukee Avenue has had a bike corral just south of the intersection with North and Damen. A couple of street parking spots for cars have been converted to bike parking, increasing the number of bike spots a good amount over the sidewalk bike racks and less safe sign posts on the street. As winter approaches, the bike corral is removed for the sake of snow plows. As you might imagine, far fewer people ride bikes in Chicago's winter anyway. There is a solid population of hearty winter cyclists here, though.
