"Brilliant. Let's do this. I'm not a fan of Critical Mass but we would be making a huge statement about consumerism. Bicycler Lives Matter, too."

"I start to steadily ring my bell as I approach, and continue as I pass. They always move quickly out of the way. No problem. Works in the car with the horn as well. Just slowly creep up on them with steady toots. I never could understand why people…"

"But you really have to be careful around the ones that wear shades, sport teardrop tattoos on their beaks and have a suspicious bulge under their wing feathers. You see some of them around town driving BMW's. Cops won't even get near them…"

"Lol. I think they're setting up an ambush for me. Not once but twice I ran into a flock of them around the DuSable Harbor area of the LFT. By the second time I was getting quite loud with my quacking. I definitely ruffled a few feathers,…"

"I've also encountered a Lakefront Lance that would not break until waterfowl was up in his grill. Still not sure how he managed to not crash...Daft individual. Also, we cannot rule out Cackling Geese at this juncture."

"They don't. Or rather they do move, but straight up so you get hit in the face and crash. I've watched it happen twice to the can't/won't/don't stop (or slow, in this case) crowd."
