Cameron 7.5 mi replied to CityMom's discussion Help me learn to bike in the city. Where do I start?
"For getting comfortable riding in traffic and learning the ropes, there's no substitute for getting out and riding. I'd suggest finding some group rides that interest you and heading out with other cyclists until you are comfortable riding…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Jim Reho's discussion Pedal Pubs?
"Pedal Pubs only work in very limited settings. They're the size of a large car and move slower than walking. There too big to be used in crowded areas, and too slow to mix with traffic that had somewhere to go. Basically you need a large, but…"
Cameron 7.5 mi replied to George Schick's discussion Aerobars - a fading fad?
"Aerobars were never allowed in most forms of racing (I believe triathlons were the only major races to allow them). Since air resistance is related to the square of speed, they only offer much advantage when riding fast or into a strong tailwind.…"
Cameron 7.5 mi replied to DanGer 8.2mi's discussion I hit a car with a rock
"Unless you were chucking cobble stones, I'd doubt that there were any damages. A little pebble shooting out from under your tires would do less harm than the rocks that car tires kick up driving over gravel."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Steve Mac's discussion Hardest section of your commute...
"Clark from Armitage to North is the worst part of my commute. I used to jump over to Wells, but I had enough near misses that it wasn't worth getting off of Clark and then having to find my way east once in the Loop. I haven't found a good…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Madopal (16.5 mi)'s discussion Worst Divvy Locations
"I'd guess that Irving and Keeler was selected because it's next to both an El and a Metra station. It wouldn't be terrible to ride south on Keeler from there."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Haddon's discussion Young biker, if I may ask, why do you put your lock in your belt and why are your keys dangling off your backpack?
"I look mine around the saddle rails, and then it hangs down just above the rear fender."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Greg Berry's discussion Dedicated Cycling computer or Smartphone app?
"Unless you only ride in areas with very good GPS reception (clear view of the horizon to allow for multiple satellite locks), a dedicated cycling computer will be more accurate. If you zoom in on your ride data from a smartphone app, you'll…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Mike Schwab's discussion Rain + Wind + Bicycle Trailer + Baby = Child Neglect?
"Yeah, there's a big gap between don't strap a broken trailer to a moped and go for a ride in a tropical storm, and don't ride with a child trailer in the street ever. An appropriate level of caution is somewhere between the two…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Mike Schwab's discussion Rain + Wind + Bicycle Trailer + Baby = Child Neglect?
"That looks pretty jury rigged. It sounds like they just looped the safety strap around the moped and the trailer hitch may not have even been connected. On a side note, those facial sores in dad's mug shot look like the early signs of a meth…"

"Also a tropical storm is more than just wind and rain. I'd question being out in any vehicle durring a tropical storm."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Maurice's discussion Major reroutes near Union Station
"Fulton seems like a stupid place to end the bike lane. Why not go one block further to where Clinton ends at Kinzie? One direction of riders is going to have a challenging cross at Fulton to get to the conventional bike lane for that last block."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Russ Mugnaini's discussion Possible new trail
"I suspect part of the reason for maintaining it is CP and CSX's attempts to merge and this line's potential to be a connection between CP's Bensenville Yard and CSX's Bedford Park Yard."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Russ Mugnaini's discussion Possible new trail
"If you're not sure who own's the tracks, it should be written on the little sheds that house the signal equipment at the grade crossings. If you don't get a response from CN, walk over to a grade crossing and verify it's their…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Russ Mugnaini's discussion Possible new trail
"The rails are being maintained for some reason. If you've never seen a train, the railroad probably thinks that the corridor could be valuable in the future (it connects two large yards owned by different mainlines) and is doing enough to keep…"

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.
