Stick the Landing

"Heh, I'm too cheap to ante up the admission fee. I ride along the LFT all the time, but I've often wondered how it would feel to ride my bike on the drive itself. Unfortunately, I don't have CL shirt. The idea seems like a good tie in…"

"When I ride my bike, I feel like a kid again, which is not to imply that I had ever matured in the first place.  I read an article once, written by a woman, who stated that men are more in touch with their inner child. I think she had…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Andrew Bedno's discussion Who cares for the LFT???
"I thought the concrete lip was a smart idea. A few years ago, when the path just north of Oak Street beach was torn up by a huge storm, most of the damage was done by waves that lifted up the asphalt from the edge that faced the lake. The concrete…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to Andrew Bedno's discussion Who cares for the LFT???
"They did a great job. The LFT is nice and smooth all the way from the museum campus to Ardmore and the Navy Pier flyover is coming along nicely, as well. By this time next year we should be able to use it. "

Joe Guzzardo replied to Jennifer on the lake's discussion "If only there was some way to spin while en route to work..."
"LOL. Brilliant idea! Have you considered a Kick Starter project? I can't help but wonder if the spinners are connected to a generator to power the bus itself. Elon Musk and Fred Flintstone would both be jealous."
