Pothole Reporting

I've seen some bad ones get much worse over the past few months. Theoretically, the more people that report them, the more likely they'll get fixed. Report them to the city here:…See More

"Dear Navy Buick Sedan,  I know, you're in a car, you're special. So special. What makes you more special is you figured out that if you drive on the one way streets parallel to Logan Boulevard, you can go really fast and avoid all…"

"Another thing to consider is the season...If it's 80 degrees out, you may not want a sleeping bag. When I toured Hawaii, I only used a sleeping bag liner. At the time, mine was about $14. It packs down smaller than a can of beer. They make them…"

I entered a pizza contest...

Hello Everyone!Between bicycle rides, I've managed to make a pizza, and enter a pizza contest. Since I'm a little late to the game, I'd love if anyone could vote for my video, if you like it. If not that's cool too. The other contenders are some women throwing frozen pizza at their oven, a pizza with butternut squash and a minimalist pizza. I went all in and made my deep dish, hoping to win the popular vote.TL;DR: I made pizza to win tickets to the Chicago Pizza Summit and am begging for…See More

Jaik S. might attend 606 Cycles's event

We thought a good way to give more people a chance would be to add a food drive for canned goods which we will be donating to Christian Community Church on Wilson and Hamilton. All you have to do is bring in 1 canned good for 2 tickets or 2 cans for 5 tickets. The max amount of tickets we'll be able to give each person will be 25 tickets for the…See More

"Congrats on your Brompton! Last year, I got one for me and one for the lady. Longest distance on them in a day so far is about 40 miles. I'd highly recommend the Ortlieb/Brompton bag if you plan on doing anything aside from work stuff on it.…"

Jaik S. replied to dav's discussion Bicycle's in Union Station???
"The Clinton St entrances are handicap accessible, and easy to roll a bicycle through. It's the better option than the stairs. I don't think I've every actually went through other entrances...Maybe next time I'll check them out."
