"The idea of extending the Bloomingdale east over the river was brought up at every preconstruction design workshop. The Finkl redevelopment creates an opportunity to make it happen, plan space to make it easier to implement in the future, or block…"

"There really isn't a cost effective fix for the current path. Any successful project would have to reconstruct and redesign the lake wall. A more cost effective option would be to build a two way PBL on the east side of the inner drive between…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Haddon's discussion In Poland (?) bikers apparently wear Top Hats.
"Maybe the sign is advising cyclists that if they wear a top hat, drivers will give them 1m of passing clearance. Possibly due to the Dick Van Dyke effect."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Tom A.K.'s discussion What Tools Do You Carry for Bike Repair When You Ride?
"It depends on the trip. Meeting friends for drinks I typically carry nothing because I don't want to carry a bag. Commuting I typically carry a tube, pump, and tire levers. Touring I carry 2 tubes, a patch kit, a tire, pump, tire levers, multi…"

"Is anyone else disappointed that this turned out to be an actual practical guide to winter cycling instead of pictures of cyclists trying to ride in the recent record snowstorm?"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Rob D.'s discussion HELP! Expert suggestions needed for cold hands/fingers!
"You want Pogies or Bar Mitts (two brands making essentially the same product). They attach to your handlebar and create a sheltered, insulated pocket for your hands. They let you have the warmth of heavy gloves with the bulk on your hands and the…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Bob Kastigar's discussion Bicyclist killed by semi in Lansing
"One of the news articles described the cyclist as traveling south. Since the crash location is listed as the on ramp, this probably means that he was in the cross walk and the truck was turning onto the ramp. "

"It's not that professional athletes all of the sudden starting taking lots drugs in the 90's, it's that science got to a point where the drugs actually started helping. "

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Haddon's discussion Chicago Divvy bikes blowing in the wind, 31 Oct 2014
"I know a fair amount about bikes and wind. I don't have the time or interest to calculate the wind forces for this exact scenario, but wind loads as high as 40 psf do happen. The skirt guard probably has an area around 1 sq. ft. (assuming…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Haddon's discussion Chicago Divvy bikes blowing in the wind, 31 Oct 2014
"I'm at least close enough to a scientist that I could play one on TV. The easiest way to picture how Chicago's buildings impact wind is to think of a river. This isn't an entirely accurate comparison because unlike water, air is a…"

Hey Cameron! I actually got word this morning that they found us a host family. Yeah! They're pretty close to the campgrounds actually. I'd love to meet up that evening or somewhere along the way for some good ol fashioned chainlink fun. Thanks again for looking into it for us. Cheers!

Hey, for the IL beach SP ride, would you mind if myself and Brittany were to share a site with you and liz? we have a 2 (and 3) person tent of our own. I wasnt sure how this all worked so I put our names down on the spread sheet but that can easily be changed.
