Impressions of Last Night
5 Replies

"I'm trying to piece together this order of events. It sounds like you were on Clinton ("[he] biked off down Clinton")? The initial encounter happened near Lake ("our exchange at Lake") and later you turned onto…"

Tooscrapps replied to aLex's discussion An apology and explanation
"He rung the bell to signal (which is proper) and you still admonished him for not saying "on your left". It was a miscommunication and you felt the need to tell him off. I'm sorry, but what did you expect?"

Tooscrapps replied to Jeremy's discussion Dickens bike greenway
"Well said. They also didn't really address the issue of sharing the Oz Park path well, which was friction point. Ideally, they widen the south path or add parallel bike through the park. However, that was not in the plan because it's Park…"

"I haven't seen any motorists "blowing" stop signs, but rather rolling or speeding from one to the next, including box trucks and filled-to-the brim junkers. For context, I don't consider a cyclist who rolls a stop when its clear…"

Tooscrapps replied to lft_rat's discussion Your friendly PSA
"You're right about proper drafting. Being 1.5-2 ft behind someone when it's windy is definitely beneficial though, and that's about the only time I'd ask to jump behind a stranger. Of course, I'm happy to pull when it's…"

Tooscrapps replied to lft_rat's discussion Your friendly PSA
"Even if I received permission, I still wouldn't draft as close as you say he was! I don't know their riding style, how they pass, etc."

Tooscrapps replied to Jeremy's discussion Dickens bike greenway
"Yah, Webster used to be my eastbound route until I realized how awesome Dickens is. I generally go south to Armitage at Clifton instead of Racine."

Tooscrapps replied to Jeremy's discussion Dickens bike greenway
"It's not the worst, but the intersections and frequent backups leave something to be desired. I certainly try to avoid the rats nest of Ashland/Clybourn/Fullerton. To/from Cortland/606 is always Belden/Dickens for me."

Tooscrapps replied to Jeremy's discussion Dickens bike greenway
"1. They can't even fix the puddle in the sidewalk that leads to the North Ave ped bridge, so I have doubts there is going to be a dedicated bikeway through the park and over LSD. This would likely tie into the existing path network in Lincoln…"

"This would make a great greenway. Dickens is a great way to get to across LP to the Cortland St Bridge."

Tooscrapps replied to Brian S's discussion When will the Trail Separation project be completed?
"The South entrance is a staircase, so it makes sense to *only* link to the ped path. The North entrance is a ramp, which both cyclists and peds use, which is why is links to both paths."

"Oh, I thought this was a reference to or review of the 1986 film starring Rob Lowe and Demi Moore that was shot here in Chicago that was an adaptation of David Mamet's "Sexual Perversity in Chicago.""
