"This has happened to me too. I'm actually gaining weight, bit by bit. I ride at least 14 miles everyday, and also work out in the gym at work 2-3 times a week, varying the area of my body that I focus on each time. I'm sure it has to do…"

"- if the weather is bad in the morning, but clears up later (or vice versa), you can bike for half your commute. - when the winter slop gets too bad, you can spare your bike from the salt and grime. - you can bike to meet non-riders, travel…"

"Does anyone know what the lighting plan is for the new section of trail?  There are no light poles next to the trail, which is now being lit by temporary construction lights nearby. "

Gene Tenner replied to JeffB (7+ miles)'s discussion Lake Front Path at Fullerton
"Let's try this again. I did not say anything about clearing the sand; on Friday they were laying down sand/clay/composite and side rails. This was being done, I assume, in advance of paving, unless it is crushed limestone.  "

" I took this at 4:00 p.m. today. They wwere laying down and grating sand and edging the alternative path with metal slats. So, it looks like paving will occur shortly."

"Thanks. The sand was cleared when I rode last night. I guess patience works too. But does anyone know if that alternate path, higher up, is gone for good?"

"Except now the path is getting covered in that beach sand. Should I report it to 311 or somewhere else?"

Skip Montanaro 14.5mi replied to JeffB (7+ miles)'s discussion Lake Front Path at Fullerton
"I noticed that as well. One would hope that the way they filled in that section would minimize the chances of waves splashing the path. Before, didn't the water splash directly against a bit of breakwater? Now there is a bit of beach sand which…"

Lake Front Path at Fullerton

I recently rode the LFP for the first time since they opened up the new segment by Fullerton and I was disappointed to see that they've already torn up the paved detour path.Does anyone know if this is just temporary, or is the plan to go back to the dirt path on the upper section? It would be nice to have a paved alternative when the LFP near the lake at Fullerton is flooded, or iced, or sandy, like it is now.And who do I contact to get that sand cleared? 311? The park district? Anyone have a…See More

"They were still paving yesterday, but the right lanes in both directions were done. So much better to ride that stretch now. Wonder how long the lane markings will take."

JeffB (7+ miles) replied to David P.'s discussion Please stop for pedestrians!
"I agree. While I applaud the intention here, if you're not directing traffic from all directions (which you can't on your bike), you're almost as likely to cause a collision. Its kind of like all those times I've nearly been hit…"

"Reminds me of when I was on Ridge in Evanston and a driver told me I couldn't be on that street. I laughed in disbelief, but then I saw a similar sign a little further down the road"

"Yeah, this was one of the areas most in need of repaving. Hopefully we'll get good lane markings on northbound Elston at Ashland"
