My apologies to the woman behind me on the inbound protected bike lane. My ice wipeout may have led to hers. And thanks to the guy on the Divvy behind us, who was able to avoid the ice, for checking…Continue

"Yeah...wish I'd paid more attention to that object placed at the entrance to the protected bike lane. I thought it was just pointing out the visible ice at snow at that corner...little did I know it was an indicator of the ice field ahead. I…"

Danger--Milwaukee Ave. South of Ogden a sheet of ice

My apologies to the woman behind me on the inbound protected bike lane. My ice wipeout may have led to hers. And thanks to the guy on the Divvy behind us, who was able to avoid the ice, for checking on me. I reported the city...but no sign of salt on the protected bike lanes this a.m. Sadly, I learned too late. Looks like a day of back pain for me. See More
