The Chainlink

Hey all. I searched the discussions hoping to find some comments on the bike lane conditions for the major bike-lane streets. But I didn't find anything so am starting my own thread.

I usually ride Lincoln, but am hoping maybe there is an alternate that is less slushy. Not sure I can expect to find anything better, but am wondering if anyone can report on the state of plowing on Elston? Or Clark St? 

Thanks

Last two mornings Clark from Belmont into the loop has been "ok" for the most part.

The bike lane on Lincoln Ave was particularly bad this morning. Lots of slush that gets stuck to your tire, making for a slippery ride. I ended up riding in the roadway

 Don't have any real alternative. My choices to avoid Lincoln typically consist of backroads, which the last few days were in pretty bad condition.

I typically take Clybourn. It doesn't have an official bike lane, but it's nice and wide with plenty of room for everyone to get along and share the road. In the past it's been pretty clear after snow falls, but I haven't been riding this week.
