"One of the cool things about Strava that many people don't know is that, with so many people using it, data is being used by municipalities to study where people are actually riding. This can influence planning for bike routes. "

"I used Strava for a while but switched to MapMyRide, which I'd used previously.  I found that Strava did put a heavy load on the battery, and also Strava required internet access to start, tho it can be disconnected once started."

Jaik S. replied to Alisa Hauser's discussion What do you think of the new "dashed" bike lane markings in Wicker Park?
"Honestly, I wish they would have just paved the entire stretch from Kinzie to Irving Park. The cyclists constantly avoiding potholes and sometimes trying to pass each other doing so creates an incredible safety hazard. Cars speeding through in…"

"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."

"They could really use this on the new bike lane on west Harrison near UIC. I've seen several vehicles, including a CTA bus, use it as a 2nd lane."

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

Tony Adams replied to Jaik S.'s discussion Temporary Bike Lane Barriers for Experimentation
"I like! The City could use these to narrow bike lanes that are so wide that they tempt selfish drivers to drive in them. (I'm looking at you Wabash, south of Archer.)"
