Allan replied to Gary Elfring's discussion Anyone riding LE TOUR DE SHORE and have space for 2 riders going back to Chicago?
"I thought more than one of the Amtrak Chicago-Pontiac Michigan Amtrak trains permitted bikes, but sadly it doesn't. (source: https://www.amtrak.com/ccurl/878/628/Michigan-Services-Schedule-103116,0.pdf ) The Blue Water(once in each…"

Allan replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Lakefront Trail From Diversey To North To Close For Construction May 22
"Thanks for posting this info. Wish they'd gotten this done before May, but better late than never to start the project. I should remember that CPD lakefront trail website, since it does have a lot of construction and detour map pdf info on it."

"I'm assuming Mike meant that path north of Belmont that goes along the west side of the river, to the east end of Roscoe. Right by WMS'(formerly Williams) headquarters, and where Cafe Tola(former Franks Meats Patty, and of course former…"

Allan replied to Marcelo Marcos's discussion Recommended bike route to get to Big Marsh
"So you took the Red Line to 95th St., went east on 95th to King Dr., south on that to 103rd,east on that to Doty, made a right on Doty and then a left onto Stony Island, and then south on that to Big Marsh? Interesting, since I'd never gone…"

Allan replied to Yasmeen's discussion Dreaded Bike-Unfriendly Streets
"Thanks for posting this update, on the Riverview Bridge project. I had explored the rear of California Park before(just south of Horner Park) last year one late night when I was bored, and I got that sense looking at the land that there'd…"

"I hadn't tried Central Park yet, but is it really that bad? That's too bad, I was thinking about trying Central Park to see how it is for biking. It looks like it'd be a doable street to bike in some areas, like say south of…"

"What Carter said, if it only went further. :) Usually I use Ravenswood, since it's more continuous of a street vs. Leavitt. Though I have used Leavitt, at times."

"The extension of the North Branch to Foster is almost complete, from the times I've gone by there on Foster. Only thing that needs to be done is to pave the path between Forest Glen Ave. and Foster, and of course stripe the trail."

"Where in Edgewater do you live? If I'm biking a route like that, usually I take Clark south to Southport, then go on Southport to Clybourn, then take that south to Division, then Orleans. Of course it gets a little tricky the further south you…"

"I didn't realize those pedestrian plazas were added. I'll have to see what you mean, next time I go by those 2 places on Elston."

"Yes 110%, to Ravenswood! Glenwood is nice too, but yep it does have too many speed bumps. Plus a few rare ones(just the 2 immediately south of Granville, but most especially the one between Hood and Granville) that are rough to bike over, where…"

"Ugh, I always dreaded how much traffic there is on the lakefront path, south of Fullerton Ave! It's tolerable to like about Fullerton, but beyond there it very often can become such a PITA to bike on. Having to dodge around the bike taxis,…"

"I don't mind biking on Wolcott, but I really wish there was a traffic light at Foster and Wolcott. Hence why I usually bike on Wolcott, from Winnemac to south of there(at Berteau). Wolcott is also a good bike route to use, south of Grace and…"

Allan commented on Serge Lubomudrov's group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"I'm not sure how I missed that you were going to go to Suttons Bay, and Cedar. Good you are at least going to briefly go into that peninsula, northwest of Traverse City. I also didn't know Itasca had another brewery opening up, besides…"
