Bike/Pedestrian Hostile Sale Policy

I just sent this via a comment form at JewelOsco.com:I was distraught to realize that your "Must Buy 3" sale on soft drinks discriminates against those of us who walk to or ride our bikes to your store. Three twelve packs of soda is about all I can carry. Am I supposed to make a special trip just to buy Coke and then come back to buy the rest of my groceries?Please let me know who was responsible for this policy and how I may contact them.Thank you, Tony AdamsNow I don't actually buy very much…See More

Tony Adams 4 mi replied to JeffB (7+ miles)'s discussion Advice needed about failing bike parts
"Now is a great time to buy a new bike if you can find one you like that fits you. The best deals are on bikes that are still in stock and by this time of year, depending on what shop, the pickings for those bikes can be pretty slim. I'm just…"

"Yes, super unpleasant. I would note though, that for most riders coming from the south west or north east, Archer is probably a better bet than Cermak. Archer has bike lanes (mostly) east of Throop. Cermak is four lanes mostly around there, and it…"

Compost Service by Bike

Some of the riders in my dwelling are meeting with Farmer Jon today to get set up for kitchen waste composting service.[The] compost collection business is similar to other in Chicago but with two notable exceptions — it's conducted entirely by bike and is believed to be the South Side's only such service.…See More

Thanks for your interest, Tony, and your offer.  When I get info on how to set up a presentation (Paul, I guess), i'll be happy to have your help.  You are my friend, too once I figure out how to do that. Peg

Oh, very cool, thanks for the link. Ive heard mythical folklore about 'the guy who designed the Paramount' from Chicago but did not realize the shop was still in business. I will definitely have to drop in. So is your bike a Schwinn then? I am a bit disappointed its not Nasty's Cycles but the real story is very good in its own right.

Does that say 'Nasty's Cycle' or 'Hasty's Cycle' on your icon pic? Or none of the above?

Hey Tony, what's the best way for me to get in touch to set up a coffee/beer get together?

Thanks,
