David Henri replied to V W's discussion CPD culture and its hostility toward cyclists - and one suggestion to protect cyclists in light of this
"I've noticed that most of the links you provided are comments from 2011 and 2014.  I didn't see anything relatively new.  It also appears that there are a few very angry (and illiterate) people commenting on that blog.  I…"
David Henri replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Self-entitled little brat."
David Henri replied to Tom A.K.'s discussion Aurally Assaulted by an Excessively Loud Emergency Vehicle Siren While Cycling?
"I think the emergency vehicles here in Chicago overdue it when it comes to using the siren.  There is no reason to have it blasting continuously as they progress down the street.  In Washington DC they only use it at intersections and give…"

David Henri replied to Alisa Hauser's discussion What do you think of the new "dashed" bike lane markings in Wicker Park?
"Ii just rode Milwaukee for the first time in a week (waiting for the paving to be completed).  I do like the fact that the dashed white lines go all the way through the intersections, something most bike lanes don't do.  But they…"

David Henri replied to Jaik S.'s discussion Temporary Bike Lane Barriers for Experimentation
"Actually I really like these.  I wish Chicago would try something like this.  The article says they placed 100 meters (a football field) in 3 hours.  One could transform a street in a single day."

"Or to actually separate the cars from the bike lane (I'm looking at you Dearborn in the loop)."

David Henri replied to Yasmeen's discussion What Are Your Favorite Chicago-Area Bike Lanes, Paths & Routes?
"I agree.  I used to use Milwaukee all the way to downtown from Lawrence, but since they milled the surface for several miles lately, I have tried Elston and am pleasantly surprised.   Now I do Montrose to Elston, to Division to Clark.…"

David Henri replied to Kate Thoren's discussion Ms Manners, Cycling Edition
"I usually don't say much, just watch the behavior, except when it comes to watching someone ride right alongside the parked cars, maybe only one foot away.  I have missed being doored by inches more than once this year.  I usually try…"

David Henri replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"I've had several incidents with rage drivers on that westbound stretch, to the point where I now head south to Montrose to avoid it, even if it adds an additional mile to my ride."

David Henri replied to Louis K's discussion Should cyclist go to jail for riding a fixie?
"Just the other day, commuting into the loop, at Milwaukee and Kinzie, I say an older guy, my age, around 55 or 60, riding a fixie with no brakes, into the loop.  I didn't say anything but my mind was in overdrive.  Seriously, no…"

David Henri replied to Siobhan Dodds's discussion Need advice on a good year round commuter bike for Chicago
"Where are you going to be storing your bike while you're at work?  Will it be outside, or in a secure place indoors?  That would make a big difference to me.  You will notice that most commuter bikes that are stored outside…"

David Henri replied to Yasmeen's discussion How Can We Share Our Viewpoints And Win Others Over?
"Yasmeen, I'm not on Facebook so I haven't seen the photo, but speaking for myself, I'm happy when I see cops on bikes. With all of the misunderstanding going on, I'm happy to see law enforcement walk in our shoes. I think it…"

David Henri replied to Yasmeen's discussion Pet Peeves Among the Pedals
"Maybe it's not too bad during off rush-hour periods, but I ride it regularly to work and back.  Between dodging the manholes north of Daly Plaza (where they paved the lane but didn't adjust the structures as they should have) and the…"
