Apie (10.6) replied to Thedutchtouch's discussion route suggestion for tonight? UKV to portage park?
"Elston is about 2 miles out of your way.  Take California or Kedzie to Milwaukee to Lawrence. Milwaukee is still one way for 1/2 mile north of Addison to Irving, so take the west sidewalk on your way back south. I ride it daily and it is a…"

Apie (10.6) replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I wiped out on Kinzie between Orleans and Franklin.  Damn it was icy, so I took the lane.  Got caught on an ice lip and did the slow motion fall.   Thanks to the cars behind me that didn't run me over.  "

Apie (10.6) replied to Scott Fisher's discussion North Branch Trail
"I rode the trail from Central south to Pulaski yesterday, and it was obviously crazy muddy, but super fun.  I'll have to do some trail maintenance in a few weeks, there are a few trees that need to be moved off the trail"

Apie (10.6) replied to Legacy Frameworks's discussion Hub Generator Wheel Building & Lighting Class
"Bump for my review of Levi's class: I took a Hub Generator/wheel building class with Levi of Legacy Frameworks.  I always thought it would be a complex process, but Levi broke it down to basic components, concentrating on teaching me how…"

Apie (10.6) replied to David 4.0's discussion Seeking Input on Chicago Public Fix-It Stations
"Logan square El stop would be a great community space for a Fix-it station.  There is also a lot of room at that NWish corner of Milwaukee and Kedzie"

Apie (10.6) replied to kiltedcelt's discussion Platform pedals and Keen "street" sandals
"I ride with these, they have a little more surface area than the Touring ones.  They've survived the last 3 winters, and they spin like the bearings have just been cleaned and lubed.  I am a huge fan of the quality of MKS pedals.…"

We all have an inner Beast... replied to Apie (10.6)'s discussion South Halsted Ave
"I have ridden Halsted (Archer to Jackson or Monroe, and vice versa) for the last 3 yrs or so (use it for other travel arrangements, as well). Other than the recent construction near UIC, and the typical winter issues, it has been fairly…"

john eminhizer replied to Apie (10.6)'s discussion South Halsted Ave
"From 26th south I use a combo of Union (NB) and Wallace (SB) to 48th. South of 43rd a combo of idiots and buses (ALL the buses) use the bike lane on Halsted. 26th to Clyborn on Halsted. Been awhile but worked well for me. Cut off a bus (in a safe…"

WalkThroughWater replied to Apie (10.6)'s discussion South Halsted Ave
"Good point. Pilsen has industrial and warehouse areas, a few along Halsted between Cermak and the river and a glass company in Bridgeport at Halsted and 29th that always has trucks queuing up to make deliveries. I haven't had problems with them…"

Anne Alt replied to Apie (10.6)'s discussion South Halsted Ave
"We've definitely got some challenges.  What I described there is too common in areas of the south and west sides that have intermodal yards.  I've learned to work with it and rarely have problems, but I can understand how it…"

"I never rode my bike south of 35th when I lived in Bridgeport if I was not on a group ride. Wise advice! "

Anne Alt replied to Apie (10.6)'s discussion South Halsted Ave
"Canal can be a good option. A few notes: it has heavy traffic of all types around Roosevelt, but mostly light to moderate traffic south of 14th.  South of the river, there's a big intermodal freight yard along the east side of Canal. …"

Anne Alt replied to Apie (10.6)'s discussion South Halsted Ave
"It's not so bad with wider tires, like the 1.75" tires on my mountain bike. I've found it more challenging with tires 1.25" or narrower, especially 20" or smaller wheels (folding bike or recumbent). "
