" Hahaha! Thanks for that, Tom. Luckily I had put my coffee down before I read that! I was looking over the pictures I took and saw Kye Martin holding a microphone... missed my chance for those 15 seconds. :-/ Steve "

"I took off some layers, didn't use the balaclava, and still got to Union Station sweating like a pig. Nice temperature... I could get used to this weather! Steve"

"Haven't missed a day so far this winter! Just installed a trigger-shift on my folder to replace the twist-grip, which was hard to locate gears with. More snow in the forecast, but spring is just around the corner now! Hope to see people at…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"That nitwit is lucky you didn't just plow into him/her. How is it possible the pinhead "didn't see" you? Easy: he/she didn't LQQK! Good thing you weren't a car. Steve You:  said sorry, said (incredibly) "I…"

"To the driver of the enormous black SUV that turned left in front of me, crossing my bike lane at about 5:45 this evening causing me to also turn left, squeezing between you and the south-bound traffic on Peoria and pounding my fist on your vast…"

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"I used to switch over to studs on the long Thanksgiving weekend. It has worked out most of the time over the years. Now I have an old bike that I equip with studded tires so I can adapt to the weather to some extent. I still think the end of…"

Steve Weeks replied to h' 1.0's discussion Winter 2015- who's still riding?
"I got 2 new ones, as the ones I used for the last two years were pretty worn out. I have a "beater" bike that I put the studs on, so I can switch between studs and no studs until the winter really gets going. Steve "

"I was in Boston last Friday waiting for a bus on a crowded sidewalk. The street was pretty crowded as well. Along came a hipster type on a fixie (on the sidewalk) calling out "Bikers' rights! Bikers' Rights!" as he drove right…"

"Heh... I commented on a squad car parked in the bike lane on Jackson right in front of the Chicago Police Education and Training Academy. The officer responded in a not very friendly way. I was about to be late for my train, so kept riding.…"

"Regarding cars (even police cars!) parked in bike lanes: Here is the part of the Municipal Code of Chicago that pertains to this: 9-40-060 – Drivers must not park, stand or drive a vehicle in any bike lane (MCC) I think there's a fine…"

"Good point, Jeff. Actually, this happens to me on a frequent basis. 'Cept I don't always catch up to the other rider. ;-) Actually, it's sort of interesting to notice how far ahead people get by not waiting for the green light... not…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"If another rider is catching up to you at four successive lights, either those are some loooong lights, or you and that rider are going at nearly the same speed. If it came to being "forced" into traffic to pass a somewhat slower rider,…"

Steve Weeks replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"I think I understand now. If there are many cyclists involved, there's a sort of "critical mass" extending out into the intersection, which is potentially dangerous. If it's just one or two, then it's a convenient way for a…"
