Brian replied to Laura's discussion Turned away at Walgreens Drive-thru Pharmacy
"In terms of the Walgreens on Milwaukee Ave., what was disconcerting to me is that I often get served at that drive-thur. It's only recently that I've been denied service. It was the inconsistency that bothers me. I also found that article…"

"I waiting in a long line of cars last night at the Walgreens drive through at Milwaukee and Armitage. I had a lot of stuff loaded on my bike and didn't feel like locking up. I've successfully picked up prescriptions at this drive through…"

Brian replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I don't wish him ill will. He remained standing. Just knocked me down and was able to keep rolling. And brother am I sore right now. I'm not a very good faller apparently. Got my elbow, knee and hip but good!"

"Dear sir who plowed into me at Paulina and Milwaukee this evening, while a curve might seem to you the best place to pass someone, it's really not. As I nurse my road rash, I wanted to thank you for stopping to reprimand me for not signaling…"

Brian replied to Velociraptor's discussion I rode Dearborn today...anyone else?
"I should add that I hope these new lanes are better maintained than the Elston protected lanes. They collect some serous glass. I used to go years without a flat. I'm on my 3rd flat this season with the rarely swept Elston protected bike lanes."

Brian replied to Velociraptor's discussion I rode Dearborn today...anyone else?
"I took a spin on it after work at about 7:30 pm. Rode the length of it south, then north. Worked very, very well. The lights were activated. The cars understood the signals. Very orderly. Not the fastest ride by any stretch. I sat at most every…"

Brian replied to Gopher Biker's discussion Elston protected bike lane
"I'm not an active opponent yet either, but I would like to hear that someone has a plan for maintenance."

Brian replied to Gopher Biker's discussion Elston protected bike lane
"Has anyone heard a plan for sweeping the protected bike lanes, other than they have one or two donated sweepers for the whole city? I ride Elson every day, and I'm having serious doubts about the protected bike lane initiative. Lots of glass,…"

Brian replied to Bill Savage's discussion Dedicated bike lanes, and snow plows
"I should have clarified above that I "was" a regular Elson commuter. For the time being, with the mess in the protected bike lanes, I've moved to Milwaukee Ave. I'm crossing my fingers that any plans to add protected bike lanes…"

Brian replied to Bill Savage's discussion Dedicated bike lanes, and snow plows
"I was very excited at the prospect of protected bike lanes when they first started to take shape in Chicago. As a regular Elston rider, I can now see they come with some sticky issues.   Maintenance is clearly a problem within the Elston…"

West Loop Bike Thieves Busted

I thought others might be interested to hear...Thursday, a little after noon, around Clinton and Randolph, a guy noticed someone cutting a cable lock in front of my office building with some very small handheld clippers (with another guy helping him). The passer-by called the cops and they were quick to respond. I came out when they were interviewing the two guys. They were both wearing messenger gear. The one cutting the lock produced an expired messenger ID, was wearing a messenger company…See More

Brian replied to John Greenfield's discussion "Nice rack: Wicker Park gets Chicago's first on-street bicycle corral and another sexy bike initiative" on VWYF
"Is that the North Ave. Home Depot? I was greeted by the same sight yesterday. Seems to be a trend at Home Depot stores. I've spoken with managers, but they don't seem to give a S#!!7 about bikers. With their thousands and thousands of…"
