Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Yasmeen's discussion Most Embarrassing Moment On A Bike
"I once was riding with a pair of skis strapped to a backpack. I wiped out on a patch of ice, landing on my back and rode the skis for a good distance. I'm sure the whole maneuver looked comical."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to dav's discussion This Thing Looks Fun But Where Do You Ride It?
"It looks like they're trying to revive the old school mopeds that had pedals, but were really meant to be ridden like a motorcycle (think 1970s era Puch Maxi). If that's what they're doing I'd rather they take to speed governor…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Jason's discussion Are cyclist seen as unprofessional to most people?
"How would a business know that you're a cyclist? If you're cold calling it's not like they're staring out the window waiting for you to walk in. Even if you had an appointment they're probably not watching for you to pull…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Skip Montanaro 14.5mi's discussion Another cyclist fatality
"I suspect that many are fleeing the scene because they know that the crash likely won't be investigated. Therefore if they flee they are unlikely to face any consequences. Additionally there aren't many penalties for fleeing, so even if…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Skip Montanaro 14.5mi's discussion Another cyclist fatality
"The pictures show the truck oriented southbound, completely in the bike lane with the tractor and trailer in a straight line stopped before the intersection. That positioning would imply that the truck started pulling into the bike lane a ways back.…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Yasmeen's discussion New Separated Bike Lanes on California Between Touhy and Dempster
"Not only will they not admit they goofed and fix this installation, they won't critically look at this, or any other installation, and apply the lessons learned to the next instalation. The main complaints about this instalation aren't…"

"I went through about 8:30 and the fence was closed off. They were instructing people to ride through the grass up to the bridge and they carry their bikes while waking through the planter between the path and LSD to get over the bridge. It was…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to kb's discussion Lots of runners in the bike lane lately?
"This happens every year as sidewalk cafe season ramps up and the sidewalks get cramped. In the summer lots of groups are battling for space on Chicago streets."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Are bicycle tire valve caps necessary?
"If you ride through a lot of mud, sand, or gravel, dirt build up is more of an issue. If you only ride on pavement you probably won't have any problems. Also due to the shape of the valves it's more of a problem with Schrader valves than…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Marc-Paul Lee's discussion Can we do anything about parking in a PBL?
"A bad design, poorly maintained with zero enforcement. PBLs downtown have not improved my ridding experience, and in many ways have made it worse. When there were problems with early on in the roll out, we were told be patient people just needed…"

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to john89's discussion Endless saddle issues
"Are your legs the same length? It's not unheard of for one leg to be slightly longer than the other. This could cause your saddle to be at the correct height for one leg, but to be uncomfortably stretching the other."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Yasmeen's discussion Extending the 606 over the Chicago River?
"The railroad tracks are still active west of Hamlin. It would be great if the Bloomingdale and MD-W could follow each other the way the Greenbay Trail and UP-N do, but it doesn't look like the right of way is wide enough."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Yasmeen's discussion Extending the 606 over the Chicago River?
"The Metra lines are the ones that cross over Ashland just north of there. The Bloomingdale RR used to connect to the Metra lines and they're at the same elevation."

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.
