"Here is a very nice WTTW video bit that sums up nicely the dangers of the LFP:   http://www.wttw.com/main.taf?p=80,1&pid=y07o3VvTg_y0sMSXEzl80BkJUzor1y4K   A high degree of accuracy in journalism, imo."

"The way I read the OP is that the word 'death' was perhaps not intended to be taken literally. Rather, it may be that Dario was speaking of the death of his cycling activities because of his crash. Just my 2c... "

"Between May and October, with very few exceptions, the Lake Front Path is neither a suitable nor a safe place to ride a bike. I can't say I never ride it, but I ride it about as frequently as I ride on Western Avenue."

"Some of the reasoning I'm readiing sounds just like what is going through a car-driver must be thinking when us damn slow bicyclists are in their way.  Beep-BEEP!  Get on the sidewalk and off the road!   "

"Why should we, as cyclists, expect people to move out of our way as if we were emergency vehicles; way to share the road. "
