SixtyTwoPercent replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"So, I am driving a fair bit to work now. I take the same route as my bike or run route; Damen>Elston>Milwaukee>Des Plaines. When I have to drive, I wish I were riding. And, I note how other drivers react to cyclists.  Lately, I have…"

SixtyTwoPercent replied to Gage B.'s discussion Reporting bad driving of uber and lyft drivers
"Friday I saw an Uber driver drive erratically - darting left then right - to get around traffic. She finally had enough of the situation (at this point I turned on my video function) and she dove into the bike land of Milwaukee, northbound from Des…"

"So sad right now. So, very sad. How can I ask my kids to ride their bikes in this city when lives are so quickly taken in neighborhoods like Roscoe Village. So very sad."

SixtyTwoPercent replied to Skip Montanaro 14.5mi's discussion Another cyclist fatality
"I drove that route today (normally I ride or run/ride with Divvy). That spot has been having work done and the crew there is pushing walkers and riders out into traffic by blocking the sidewalk and bike lane. Not sure if this occurred exactly there…"

"So, are you going to turn this over to BPD? Seems pretty clear the driver needs a "talking-to"."

SixtyTwoPercent replied to Thunder Snow's discussion Cyclist Hit by Tour Bus @ Michigan & Oak
"I read this piece as well and couldn't believe the timing and insensitivity. Who writes something like this, regardless of your position on the matter?  My sense is that she feels entitled and beyond reproach. Funny thing is, many cyclists…"

SixtyTwoPercent replied to mweerd's discussion What do you eat for long commutes?
"If I am exercising more than 45", I will recover with some fast protein. My morning rides are too short (25") to get any real recovery meal focus; my even rides are 45" and I hit an avocado or something similar immediately upon…"

Mark Kaplan replied to SixtyTwoPercent's discussion Wanted: Kreitler Rollers
"I have some Nashbar Reduced Radius Rollers that I got about a year ago and have not successfully used (tried about 3 times before giving up)--so they are practically new. I'd let them go for $100. You can contact me at klaplan@gmail.com. I will…"

SixtyTwoPercent replied to Thunder Snow's discussion Minneapolis Bike Share System Plans to Add Canoes & Kayaks for a Truly Multimodal Commute
"I love the idea.  I have thought about how cool it would be to run to Addison and the river, kayak to the loop, hop up and out and ride a bike to the office.   Way to go Minneapolis!"

SixtyTwoPercent replied to Ben Raines's discussion car starts to weave into your lane, you knock/bang to get their attention... they are a cop...
"I agree Donald. It never ceases to amaze me how people feel entitled to thwack a car for any level of injustice, real or perceived. I guarantee you that if someone thwacked my car it would be an issue - and I still ride over a thousand miles a year…"
