Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"3 miles for the year, and 2 trips(1 that was 2 miles(and I broke that trip up with a brief running inside an ATM to warm up), and another short trip that was 1 mile)? Sigh, I wish I wasn't so much of a wuss for biking in this weather. I keep…"

Allan replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Swap car lanes for bike lanes along Chicago Avenue in West Town?
"I agree with you, that this would be a concern to me if this were to be adopted, and it ended up slowing down bus performance. The #66 already doesn't run very fast, and at least there is a parallel bike route with Augusta Blvd. Really need to…"

Allan replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Swap car lanes for bike lanes along Chicago Avenue in West Town?
"I'll have to bike on that part of Clark, to take a look at that sometime. I also do wonder how well that shared bus/bike lane works."

Allan replied to Argonne69's discussion Divvy
"Actually Argonne69, the non-subscriber 24 hour pass rate was increased at one point from $7 to $10. That was it, it wasn't phased in over a few steps. I think that $3 increase in the 24 hour pass rate occurred sometime in 2016?"

Allan replied to Argonne69's discussion Divvy
"How did you access that data, for the number of Divvy trips at each station? I'd love to see how often Divvy stations are being used elsewhere(i.e. Oak Park, far north side of Chicago, south side, and throughout the city)."

Allan replied to Mark's discussion LFT Separation Ardmore to Montrose
"I'm a little behind the times, on hearing that's what they'll do between Montrose and Ardmore. Wouldn't be surprised, if when I was trying to save time and there weren't a lot of people out walking or running, went on biking…"

Allan replied to Joe Schmoe's discussion 606 Status?
"Weird, Metra doesn't permit skis? Even in the luggage storage area on the upper level of the train? That's really strange."

Allan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I did do a short bike ride yesterday, but just to Spiteful Brewing and back on Divvy. Via using the Balmoral and Wolcott station from Bryn Mawr/Clark, then walking 2 blocks to there and back. It sure feels really brutal, whenever you bike in this…"

Allan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I biked to the Wrigley Chriskindlmarket and back today(from Edgewater), and I'm proud I didn't wussy out and take a CTA bus or train there instead due to the fact it was colder than normal! I vow to keep biking, until either it's a…"

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2017
"How do you guys record all your total miles you've biked? Do you record each trip on Strava, or via another website or app? Maybe I should try doing this, for 2018. I'm sure this year, I've definitely beaten my past 2 biking records,…"

Allan commented on Serge Lubomudrov's group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"I've tried a few Black Husky beers before(thanks to Tenuta's in Kenosha, LOVE stopping at that store SO MUCH for create your own 6 packs of beer), and liked them. If I had a working bike, I'd consider going on this trip. Just got one,…"

Allan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"Where did you take all those flower pictures? Those are are excellent! I'm realizing it's been a number of years, since I'd last been to the Chicago Botanic Garden. I should do a revisit to the Garfield Park Conservatory and/or…"

Allan replied to Brian S's discussion Lakefront Path to Loop via the Riverwalk
"I'm very, very behind as heck on finally exploring the new Riverwalk area. :( I'm sure I'll do a visit to that area, soon enough. Hopefully before the weather gets too cold this fall, and sometime by later this month or November. Are…"

Allan commented on Serge Lubomudrov's group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"This past weekend, I went to both More in Villa Park, and also Flesk in Barrington. More was decent, and I really liked their Falling Colors Coffee beer! Flesk wasn't bad either, but More made a slight bit more of an impression on me. Next…"

Allan commented on Serge Lubomudrov's group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"I can't remember when it was when I first went to Prairie Krafts, but the better reviews I read for them vs. Half Day were why I went to Prairie Krafts instead. Still dunno if I'll ever go to Half Day once, just to say I did. BTW, has…"

Allan replied to Rich S's discussion Post your favorite local beers here! in the group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"I'm sure eventually, I'll get to Skeleton Key. Not long ago I went to Metal Monkey in Romeoville, and thought their beers were pretty decent. Also went to Werk Force that day, and they were good as well. Was also hoping to get to…"
