pat 5.5mi replied to JeffB (7+ miles)'s discussion Broken ankle (fibula). Advice requested
"Long stories but I preferred the UK bar far.  Both in terms of the quality of the medical care and my personal experience as a patient (ER experience, finding doctors, making appointments, insurance, personal interactions). "

pat 5.5mi replied to JeffB (7+ miles)'s discussion Broken ankle (fibula). Advice requested
"I broke my right ankle in February 2008, then my left ankle later that year in September (moms, don't let our kids play hockey).  Very different experiences since one was treated by the NHS in the UK, and the other happened here in the US.…"

pat 5.5mi replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"Short 1 mile ride today so i didn't wear the face mask.  I forgot what a frozen beard felt like.  It brought a smile to my face (as did passing through the (car) traffic jam at irving & lake shore)."

"How about all the Divvy bikes come fitted with cameras.  That would be interesting footage to watch! "

PFEggs replied to pat 5.5mi's discussion Watch out for Divvy Trucks
"I think those Divvy vans should have dashboard cameras running to record all the idiocy that happens on Chicago streets.  The footage of bikers, drivers and pedestrians all making mistakes on the road could be a good teaching tool.  And…"
