"Right. It excuses not being able to pave in winter, not leaving rough concrete for a year or more. Concrete pours may be more durable than asphalt. The problem is the gaps between the pours - much tougher to patch effectively when enough…"
"Artistically rustic concrete treatment...That's a very euphemistic way of putting it. ;) ...Rahm was pitting subcontractors against city crews...

"Yep, and that was torn up almost a year ago. That project had the added bonus of LOTS of steel plates, one of which was not big enough to cover the hole. Had to bug CDOT about that one a few times until they got a crew out to properly cover it and…"
We're going to wait till we get to the race and grab a Rainbow Cone at 107th & Longwood. I'd be less than truthful if I didn't admit that it was largely the intersection of bike racing and Rainbow Cone that spurred our initial interest in this event!
Thanks! Whenever we've been in Beverly on 2-wheels in the past we've always been originating from elsewhere. This matches up pretty close to what we'd been thinking in terms of a route (sans a pre-race stop by Top Notch), but figured it was worth asking as you seem to get around the whole city on a regular basis. Much appreciated.
Hi, I noticed you post a lot regarding living in the beverly neighborhood. We moved a little over a year ago to the Beverly neighborhood - actually I think we're considered Morgan Park, we are about 113th and Bell. I was wondering if you could suggest any routes around there. Mainly, I am interested in finding a good route to the lake front or to the loop. (I used to live on the north side and living down here I feel somewhat 'hemmed in'). Anyway, any suggestions you could give me would be very much appreciated.
