Beards in winter
4 Replies

I really should try to ride more in the winter. It can be exhilarating. Keeping your extremities warm is key. I find a beard really helps here.  I'd like to keep this to a men's only discussion,…Continue

Canadian Geese

It happened again today. A flock of Canadian Geese were crossing the LFT as I approached. I've quacked at them mercilessly but most of them just ignore me.I know it's only a matter of time before one…Continue

So this afternoon, on the way home from work, I saw a Google Street View Suv waiting first in line at the red light going northbound on Clark at Polk. It was a Hyundai with California license plates.…Continue

Joe Guzzardo replied to Yasmeen's discussion Have You Made Any Cycling-Related Resolutions For 2017?
"Hmmm, I'm not so sure that's a good resolution. If we accept that behavior then we are condoning it, which puts more of us at risk. I'm not suggesting you get aggressive, but you are certainly entitled to get scared and angry. "

Joe Guzzardo replied to Julie Hochstadter's discussion Who Did You Run Into (See) Today On Your Commute/Ride?
"Huh? It's the dead of winter, coldest month of the year. Your last post to this thread was in July of 2015. You were bummed out then and happy now? Whatever you've been drinking, please share."

"Hmmm, if you do that, you better put the lawn chairs on the hood or roof of your vehicle. Let's not forget that Chicago holds the distinction of being murder capital of America."

Google Street View in town

So this afternoon, on the way home from work, I saw a Google Street View Suv waiting first in line at the red light going northbound on Clark at Polk. It was a Hyundai with California license plates. There was a driver and a passenger in the front seats of the vehicle. I halfway expected the vehicle to be auto-piloted. As I rode by, I gave them the biggest smile possible. The passenger looked up from his smart phone and smiled back. Made my day. Somehow, though, I don't think I'll make it into…See More

"Here's another reason I disagree with paying for parking downtown as the answer to our safety - there is already a huge missed revenue stream. The majority of the vehicles that park, drive, and stop in the bike lane are not ticketed. This is…"

"For all day parkers like me, it would be easy to enforce. Small bikes need no licensing. We can exclude Divvy bikes from paying parking fees. This is not rocket science."
