"I took the NB Dearborn detour on State this morning during rush with no incident. Be careful when you hit the one small patch of open metal grating on the bridge. It can be slippery."

Dearborn detour this week?

Anyone have any good suggestions for the northbound Dearborn detour this week?  The Tribune suggests the following:Northbound bicycles on Dearborn will detour east on Lake Street, north on State Street, west on Kinzie Street, then back to Dearborn.

"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."

"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."

"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…"
