"Elston was a slop fest today all the way south to Milwaukee.  A plow had been through the protected lane south of North, but it looked like the blade was never lowered to the ground, as most spots still had a good inch of ice/snow.  It…"

"Granted, we haven't seen as much snow yet as points last winter, but I'd argue that for the routes I take (Milwaukee, Kinzie, Dearborn) it's been a little better this year than last. They seem to be addressing the lanes within 24…"

"I agree with the premise, but so far Streets and San has not cleared the side streets in my neighborhood at all, so I disagree with the amazing job of clearing snow part. :-) "

"I really think that we'd be better off with bike lanes designed to be cleared by Streets and Sans as part of their normal snow removal process. CDOT made a big deal about their plans for this winter, but reports are that they're not…"

"You know, I noticed that the lane was particularly hairy there yesterday morning. I thought it was weird that they didn't do their part for bike infra by shoveling the 50 or so feet in front of their shop. "

Thank you for your contact. Nice to meet you. I am glad that you have your kids and feel the same thing. I hope I will communicate about riding bicycle with kids here as possible as I can. Thank you. Shuichi.
