Elihu Blanks replied to your duncle's discussion A note from a bike messenger to all you commuters

Elihu Blanks replied to Steven Vance's discussion Kinzie. It's what's next.
"Well listen guys this is a great lane for everyone to enjoy. There are too many of us to agree to riding the "correct" way (however this is). I think this is why we have a government to govern what is "correct" and punish what…"

Elihu Blanks replied to Jeff Blumenthal's discussion Bicycle Maintenance -- Do it yourself location?
"This is why I hate the Condo idea. I have to pay rent to pay a mortgage and rules are placed on me to live where I pay.   I'm sure there are advantages but I may as well rent if I'm going to sacrifice all that to sudo-own.   :("

"Ok Steven,   Fair enough some people could say that the protected lane isn't enought to stop a 1 ton car from hitting me so I'm still not going to ride it. But it will at least get people talking about biking and that energy could get…"
