Has anyone else noticed a slight decline going east from Clark St, especially in Lake View? My guess would be since Clark is an old Native American trail, that the original trail was build on a natural ridge.
There's a definite slop down Wrightwood and Deming and the little streets in there, heading east from the lake.
Heading East on Grace just East of Clark you barely have to pedal. Nice!
I believe you are correct. I noticed the same thing riding east on Balmoral from Clark to Sheridan Road one day. I was able to coast all the way, which was way cool.
Thanks for the link. Here's the Beverly-Blue Island piece, if anyone's curious.
