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 Gene Tenner's discussion Chicago to Build 50 Miles of ‘Better Bike Lanes’
"100% agree, I'd rather have nothing than a parking separated lane. With the way these lanes have been designed, you might as well be ridding on the sidewalk. Buffered lanes seem like the way to go."

"That rock looks like it's blocking one of the switchbacks for a wheelchair access ramp. This is more of an ADA issue than a bike issue."

Cameron 7.5 mi replied to Yasmeen's discussion Now's a Great Time to Start Using Strava... to Help Make a Case for More Bike Lanes
"Strava's data is subject to a massive selection bias and is therefore pretty low quality for planning purposes. I'd hope the city planners are smart enough to take this data with a grain of salt. This data would only show trips that Strava…"

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.
