"Rode Divvy north last night. Those cross winds really move the bike. Any idea what was up on Clark St this morning? An unbroken line of cars from Wilson down to Armitage, and south of North Ave to the loop wasn't much better."

"I've had frequent run-ins with deer along the North Branch Trail, a near collision once. I also saw a buck lying down midday about 20-30 feet off the trail. I often see deer on the street on Lansing Ave just north of Forest Glen Ave on my way…"

JeffB (7+ miles) replied to Frankie Equality Suda's discussion Bike parking
"Me too.  Especially in the loop. This is just inconsiderate, akin to parking your car across two spaces. Especially with the loss of so many parking spots when the parking meters were removed. Yes, it's nice to have two locking points…"
