Cheryl replied to Yasmeen's discussion What do you think of the "end caps" (cement curbs protecting the bike lane)?
"Haven't biked that way this week, but last week it was confusing as the cars were still parking next to the curb, requiring bikes in to the traffic lane. Some good signage and education might be in order."

Cheryl replied to Dana Bright's discussion Seeking recommendations for bike tours in Europe
"I did the self-guided tour solo. I travel solo pretty frequently so was comfortable doing the ride on my own as well. The maps for the ride were fantastic, the path well marked, and while it wasn't quite as populated as I'd expected, there…"

Cheryl replied to Vilda's discussion Think of this as a Missed Connection.
"To all of the Milwaukee Avenue commuters: I get the urge to run the red light SB at Elston, I really do. And I have no issue with you all doing it, except for those of you who refuse to yield to the Elston traffic that actually has the right of way.…"

Cheryl replied to Steve Mac's discussion Hardest section of your commute...
"Northbound Elston at Ashland during the evening commute. Drivers cut across lanes to turn right on to Ashland without paying attention. I have yet to find a way to go through that intersection feeling safe."

Cheryl replied to Madopal (16.5 mi)'s discussion Worst Divvy Locations
"Agree with all of the above. I used this station last week, thinking I could ride south on Keeler, and ended up riding on Irving which I do not like. Although it is better in the morning than in the evening. And it was a little difficult to spot…"

"White government van BE501L (couldn't tell if it was city or state) turning left from Dearborn on to Wacker at 1:50 pm today, started going through the red turn arrow. I was walking in the crosswalk and yelled to him that he had a red light and…"
