Julie M. replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I biked about 4 miles then put my bike on the train. It is pretty icy out there, and cars seem to have forgotten how to use their ice scrapers. Downtown streets look ok."

"I can confirm that there was eye stabbing mini-hail on the ride home north today before the standard snow kicked in.  The ride in was pretty nice."

"Had a nice ride early this morning, the roads were definitely in better shape than the sidewalks.  I saw a few ninja runners on the street when it was still dark out.   It's been a couple of weeks since I've been out and the…"

Julie M. replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"It wasn't bad this morning, but the wind was kind of killer.  I didn't check wind direction before leaving and ended up riding most of the way in my lowest (of 3) gears."

Julie M. replied to Active Transportation Alliance's discussion Who's joining us next Tuesday 1/21 for Winter Bike to Work Day?
"I'm sad to miss it today, but I didn't even want to Divvy in this much snow."

Julie M. replied to Thunder Snow's discussion Divvy Temporarily Closed for Snow
"I think Divvy has done a great job overall, but after my experiences today I see why they need to have days out of service.  Even today it was difficult wrestling the bikes from the docks as many were still surrounded by snow.  I had to…"

Julie M. replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I rode today - was excited to see the email about Divvy opening today as I wasn't looking forward to biking on the side streets near by house.  My main issue was that I couldn't get the Divvy bike docked as I have to dock surf once or…"

Julie M. replied to Rachel Miller's discussion Is the heat keeping anyone off the bike?
"My (non-biking) coworker suggested I buy a cooling bandana from amazon, but my favorite trick for the ride home is to freeze my water bottle a few hours before I leave work.  The water may not stay cold for the whole ride but it's nice to…"

"Jenn, let me know what you come up with for the ride home, I followed a couple of other bikers southbound on the sidewalk at Wells since no one was out walking.  I have extra clothes to bike home in but the edges of my leather saddle got wet…"

"Yes, that was a bad idea today.  The future radar map on weather.com lied to me."

Julie M. replied to Adam Herstein's discussion Anyone receive their Divvy keyfobs yet?
"Mine changed from 101 to 99.  I'll take it :)"

Julie M. replied to Steven Vance's discussion Chicago bike sharing will be known as Divvy, be Chicago flag blue
"No. 101.  It won't be practical for me to bike to work (takes more than a 1/2 hour), but I already have my bikes for that and secure bike parking at both ends.  But there have certainly been instances where I've been waiting at a…"
