"Always keep a spare change of clothes at your desk. It sucks to spend the day in wet jeans or soaked socks. If you need rain gear, ShowersPass is top-notch, and they've got a sale going on until the end of the day. 20% off using the…"

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.)"

Temporary Bike Lane Barriers for Experimentation

Full Story Here."A new protected bike lane in downtown Winnipeg, Canada, looks permanent. But the concrete barriers that line the path are actually adjustable, and after watching how traffic moves and getting feedback from residents, the city can move the lane."…See More

"I like Strava a lot but only use it intermittently as it uses a lot of data. I wouldn't say I'm competitive but it is fun to see how you rank with others and where there is some room to improve. I have privacy settings on mine too but I do…"

"You can put your work and home addresses in it and any other addresses that you park your bike in a "privacy zone" so that information is never shown publicly and only you will see where you end and begin your rides."

Carter O'Brien replied to Jaik S.'s discussion Cyclist Seriously Injured in Blody Collision on the 606 during Tuesday Evening Commute
"Yep. This falls under "buyer beware." We took the money, it came with conditions. Really, if the cyclists bother people that much, just use the parks and walk on the sidewalk. The trail itself was never intended to be a "lay out a…"
