"No pic but there's a guy I see in the loop wearing army gear,a Kryptonite chaina helmet with neon spikes on it and possibly blasting early Van Halen. He also might be crazy but if you ride in the loop you're crazy,stupid,smart,or brave."
Mike Zumwalt replied to Yasmeen's discussion North-South Bike Route Planned through Roger's Park
"Ashland is a nice alternative to Clark. Sheridan is essentially LSD north, too much volume and a high speed limit. Much like Western,or Ashland, North ave. outside of Wicker some roads aren't for cycling."
Mike Zumwalt replied to Lisa Curcio 6.2mi's discussion A Protected Bike Lane on Clybourn
"Great so with all the cabbies that WILL park,drive in it now cyclists are forced into a smaller zone becoming even more dangerous. These "protected" bike lanes are not that, Dearborn, Kinzie not to mention in the Winter they're not…"

Mike Zumwalt replied to Jim Reho's discussion From the Trib via the Washington Post: Why Cyclists Blow Through Red Lights
"Same reason drivers do, so they don't have to wait at the light. Also crossing a large road the signals aren't timed for bikes,so you're 2 lanes into crossing Western,Wacker... or waiting in 6 corners and since you're already in…"

"The hours and the brain dead enforcement is stupid, 12:01am on July 4th you can't bring your bike on the teain because of Fireworks crowds 18 hrs later!? I tried to gey on the red line last night at nearly 10 pm and was told no. It goes the…"

Mike Zumwalt replied to Jeremy's discussion 43rd ward bike stings
"Many people see you riding and think you don't see them, or are aiming for them? Riding fixed also looks like you're not stopping because you're still pedaling."

Mike Zumwalt replied to h' 1.0's discussion Husband, wife sue "reckless" Dearborn bike lane cyclist

Mike Zumwalt replied to Eli's discussion The Broadway bike lane is a joke

Mike Zumwalt replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.

Mike Zumwalt replied to Gene Tenner's discussion The technology we need drivers to buy so cycling isn't so dangerous
"The technology needed is very low tech. It's called eyes, and using them to look where you're driving and looking in mirrors to spot bikers. Bikers make sure you have lights and reflectors so you're not "invisible"."
