When I first saw this billboard I had an overwhelming urge to deface it with some graffiti, which is a crime. So please indulge me here. Consider that not only is this particular divergent series…Continue

This Xmas I'm giving sarcastic remarks, barbs and insults to those I love. In return, however, cash is appreciated. I can always apologize later as a part of my New Year's self improvement…Continue

Joe Guzzardo replied to Josh L.'s discussion Mayor and POTUS Announce New Bike Rack Technology at McDonald Cycle Center!
"I have a real love hate relationship with that facility. As I've said before, it's an oasis in a bike desert. No, worse than a desert. It's actively hostile against bicyclists. You can't pedal through Millennium Park and getting…"

Guns and Series

When I first saw this billboard I had an overwhelming urge to deface it with some graffiti, which is a crime. So please indulge me here.

Joe Guzzardo replied to Yasmeen's discussion Groups - so many old, out of date groups. What to do?
"We may participate in the forums, but your average bicyclist is not a groupie. We're independent minded. Kind of like trying to herd cats, I guess. As long as the entries are still there and searchable, what's the harm? "
