I won't ride any more (less if anything) than before but the drop in temperature gets me ill regularly.  Middle of winter I'll practically be Superman riding out in the coldest of the cold and really, no problem.  But these days, many nights I'm with a mild fever (101 at the moment), some aches and malaise.  It's every fall so not that I don't know the routine but heck it bothers me until the immune system ramps up or whatever it needs to do.H…See More

"Does anyone know what the city plans to do with all the bollards and their holders/stands when winter arrives? Do they get removed? I just imagine the first snow plow just destroying all those things in one pass. H"

"I read the same report and am a cyclist and I don't quite get how reducing the # of over all traffic lanes (sometimes by 20%) can end up increasing traffic volume.  It's basic, if your throughput potential decreases by a quarter how…"

Haddon replied to notoriousDUG's discussion So do we even have any form of moderation here?
"Notorious, I feel it necessary to put you on the same pike that you regularly offer to others. "The new rules are enough for me to drop it", but your words in fact were: "Some of my questions have been addressed and others have been…"

Haddon replied to notoriousDUG's discussion So do we even have any form of moderation here?
"NO. There are 10,000 members of The Chainlink (as of a recent event head proclaimed) and for 9,999 of the members, (give or take) the sit works just fine.  If it doesn't work for you please let me know so that I can learn. I humbly ask you…"
