King of No-Handed Cyclists

John Kohan near Belmont Harbor

The story:  John Kohan rides his bike no-handed for the entire length of the northside lakefront bike path.  And back.  Once or twice a week. 

Behind the story:  Whenever we’ve run this piece about John Kohan riding his bike no-handed along the lakefront, we’ve gotten angry emails from people who think we are just promoting his reckless behavior. What do you think?

If you think he is endangering people, you’ll be happy to know that John has moved to San Francisco, where he still rides no-handed. But he says he has never found a bike path he likes as much as the one on Chicago’s lakefront.
