Sometimes I get tired of people shoaling when I ride the Divvy
25 Replies

Marcelo Marcos replied to OnlyCHICyclerWhoStopsAtStopSigns's discussion A couple of really ignorant questions to which I probably should know the answers, but nope.
"Awesome of you to ask straight forward questions tbh. And you are not the only ChiCycler who stops at stops signs. I commute everyday and I also do. I've also been cycling for over 15 years and I agree with your kit assessment. You are doing…"

Marcelo Marcos replied to Leah Barry's discussion Best Route to Big Marsh?
"I rode that exact suggestion from Google, except I went a bit further south on the LFT before jumping west on to Jeffrey. Jeffrey is definitely nice and friendly. 103 is an absolute mess, I had to use the sidewalk on the bridge. "

"Great time. Quite obvious by the photos that I enjoyed venturing into new territory. The park is rather smaller and the jumps are more oriented towards dirt jumper bikes. The overall ride was somehow easier and harder than I thought it would be. One…"

Marcelo Marcos replied to Ernesto Martinez-Ordaz's discussion Music... headphones or bluetooth speaker?

Anne Alt replied to Marcelo Marcos's discussion Recommended bike route to get to Big Marsh
"That's about right. Crossing those highway ramps and dealing with the merging traffic can be tricky, especially when you're watching for bad pavement at the same time.  Taking the 106 bus to skip that part is always an option. When…"
