"As I come up to the 4 way stop where there is a car already waiting, I come to a complete stop with a foot down as you try to wave me through, the lady in the SUV behind you does not understand courtesy and drives around you on the right with 2…"
"You kinda sound like a motorist complaining about cyclists in "their" streets
Those events are all given permits to hold them by the city, and the park district.
This is coming from someone who believes the only good reason to run…"
"I do not understand why any rider would put himself in that situation in the first place... passing a large vehicle on the right, especially entering an intersection is the quickest way to find out out how a bug feel right before it hits a windshield"
"I do not know of any off size rim that campy made, but I was never into clinchers much. I do have a modern set of campy neutron ultras that are a nightmare to mount new tires to, My solution is to put the tires on another rim and ride em a little,…"
"Your normal route is one of my old NB routes from when I lived in Rogers Park. Sorry to hear that you got caught in the middle of that mess - why I usually avoid that section of the lakefront path in summer.
"Sadly, as stated, I saw this. Guy was not moving faster than traffic. Was in a more upright position and going totally casual as if rolling down the lane. Drivers were moving so fast past, I didn't even realize he was there on the left shoulder…"
"I happened to be listening to newsradio 78&105.9fm radio at 6:45pm last night and heard this. The traffic reporter was horrified and incensed about the cyclist in the EXPRESS lanes. I was worried too. He probably WAS moving faster then traffic!"
"I normally do not go anywhere near the path in the evening. I take Dearborn up to the park and ride through it to get over at Fullerton. I happened to be at DuSable harbor last night and decided to tough it out and stay on the…"

"So, my wife picked me up and drove us to the burbs. My legs were too shot for the 30 mile back home ride. AND we see this poor guy on the start of the express lanes zero Expletives given. She said don't you ever. Take Clark."
"1) He might have been moving faster than traffic;
2) He was probably safer than I was on the LFP between Oak Street and Fullerton around 6:15 tonight. I should have taken the Riverwalk to Dearborn and taken Dearborn north like I usually do!"
I am working on compiling as much information as possible including pics. I will try to get that up within the next day. Thanks for commenting. I really want it to go to an owner that will appreciate it. I am an avid bicycle/bicycle history lover and its a cool bike to own. Just now time for me to pass it on. Be back with more information.
I have never done any CCC rides. How far and how fast do they go? What route do they take? I ride mostly northshore routes. Im also doing the Insane Terrain Ride next month. This will be my first time doing the Swedish Days Ride. Have you done this before? What's your take on it?
