"I liked this part: Four weeks ago, Pete Pronold was leading a pack of about 30 bikers along Mill Pond Road when, out of nowhere, he was hit by a bird. Four weeks ago? Was there a failed cover-up?"

Tony Adams replied to Waymond Smith's discussion Biking policy inequality on the South side of Chicago
"It is absurd, but not hugely surprising. Just see the campaign of Chuy Garcia for a similar example. He stabbed pedestrians and cyclists in the back (by opposing speed and red light cameras) as soon as a vocal minority of disgruntled drivers made an…"

Tony Adams replied to Yasmeen's discussion Cook County Transit Plan: "Time to Focus on Bikes"
"This is really great news. I'm kind hoping that Tony Preckwinkle will run for mayor of Chicago next time around, but I was unclear about how good she would be for bikes. Sounds like she has a sensible pro-bike and pro-transit stance. "

Tony Adams replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Time To Focus On Bikes, Not Cars, Cook County Transit Plan Says
"This is great news. The plan was mentioned on WBEZ this morning, but they didn't say anything about bikes, which was quite disappointing. It is great news especially if Toni Preckwinkle agrees to run for mayor next time around."

Tony Adams replied to Jim Reho's discussion So What Can We Do To Make It Better, Specifically?
"Yes. Making generalizations about any street is bound to be inaccurate, unless that street is only a block or two long. Western is one of the worst streets for riding in the city, IN GENERAL, but there are very long stretches at least on the south…"

Tony Adams replied to Cooper Hofstad's discussion This sums up what a lot of people think. Throwing it out there.
"So the fact that you've had a few bad experiences with cyclists, which in the worst scenario would have caused perhaps some serious injury, leads you to be more concerned about the minor thread of a bike than the major threat of a car? If you…"

"One term I've heard used which is entirely accurate and reflects the cause (or at least a primary cause) of neighborhood deterioration is "under-resourced". It is a bit of a mouthful, especially compared to "bad", but at…"

Tony Adams replied to Gerry Casas's discussion camping during an overnight bike ride
"Back when I did it somewhat frequently, I was glad to have a dark green (mostly) tent. It can be kind of nerve-wracking. As Jeremy and Marc note, you want to set up camp late - ideally without much (or any) daylight left for obvious…"

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?
