"Many thanks!  I guess we need new age related categories.  I'm 62 and my husband is 75; we bike everyday.  The bike helmets cover the gray and the balding - so of course we ourselves look (and feel) much younger.…"

scooter in bike lane

10:40am at Milwaukee/Division/Ashland, seagreen scooter with older male (40ish) curly hair, no helmet harassing a bicyclist.  The scooter rider continued southbound on the Milwaukee Ave. bike lane.  Yelling back won't work - get his license plate and call it in!  I didn't get the plate number, but I did post the incident on the city's webpage.NLFSee More
