"Ok I just shopped with my bike at the Jewel on Kedzie/Elston. They probably wouldn't have let me if it was early in the day. random thought: just saw Silver"

"The Walgreens on Barry/Halsted has let me use their drive-up window as a bike-up window. REI has let me park inside rather than use the outside rack on a very snowy day."

"Hmmm, they're probably afraid of liability issues but if Dunkin' Donuts is cool with that, then I don't know. Can you find another bank? Maybe we should sue them or have Critical mass target PNC branches."

"Bike through - I like it. I dislike that PNC will not let me bike thru at any location. And their walk up window at the Western/Fullerton branch is rarely open. I am a small business owner that goes nearly daily to the bank and the amount of time I…"
