Allan replied to Bob Kastigar's discussion The Weber Spur - again
"I really don't know why more progress hasn't occurred to make the Weber Spur path on the Chicago side, a reality. Especially since Lincolnwood, IL made bike trails, out of the 2 abandoned north-south tracks that go through that town! And…"

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"I looked them up just before I saw your post linking to their site, but thanks for posting this link anyway. Was weird that when I looked on their own website, they had several blank pages with no info about some of the things they sell(i.e. cakes,…"

"Damn, I'm busy all day on Saturday, otherwise I'd be up for this. Is this going on for Sunday, as well? Thought I'd have to work that day, but looks like I may not have to work after all."

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"So the spots that are in yellow on these maps of the routes you bike, are the stops you did along these rides? I'm impressed, since I've heard of a lot of places(at least vaguely, even if I never stopped there) you mention along these…"

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"Every day? I'm amazed you've pulled that off! With how super cold(no thanks to wind chill) some days and nights get(especially at night), I don't know if I could've pulled that off. Kudos to you!"

Allan replied to Joe Schmoe's discussion 606 Status?
"At least you got there somehow, and got to ski. Yeah, the operating rules for commuter trains can be odd at times(i.e. the prohibition of NICTD/South Shore in not letting bikers get off the train at low level stations, for their pilot bike program).…"

Allan replied to Yasmeen's discussion Detroit Has an Indoor Velodrome, Why Not Chicago?
"Besides Northbrook, Kenosha, WI has an outdoor velodrome. http://www.kenoshavelodrome.com"

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"3 miles for the year, and 2 trips(1 that was 2 miles(and I broke that trip up with a brief running inside an ATM to warm up), and another short trip that was 1 mile)? Sigh, I wish I wasn't so much of a wuss for biking in this weather. I keep…"

Allan replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Swap car lanes for bike lanes along Chicago Avenue in West Town?
"I agree with you, that this would be a concern to me if this were to be adopted, and it ended up slowing down bus performance. The #66 already doesn't run very fast, and at least there is a parallel bike route with Augusta Blvd. Really need to…"

Allan replied to Gene Tenner's discussion Swap car lanes for bike lanes along Chicago Avenue in West Town?
"I'll have to bike on that part of Clark, to take a look at that sometime. I also do wonder how well that shared bus/bike lane works."

Allan replied to Argonne69's discussion Divvy
"Actually Argonne69, the non-subscriber 24 hour pass rate was increased at one point from $7 to $10. That was it, it wasn't phased in over a few steps. I think that $3 increase in the 24 hour pass rate occurred sometime in 2016?"

Allan replied to Argonne69's discussion Divvy
"How did you access that data, for the number of Divvy trips at each station? I'd love to see how often Divvy stations are being used elsewhere(i.e. Oak Park, far north side of Chicago, south side, and throughout the city)."

Allan replied to Mark's discussion LFT Separation Ardmore to Montrose
"I'm a little behind the times, on hearing that's what they'll do between Montrose and Ardmore. Wouldn't be surprised, if when I was trying to save time and there weren't a lot of people out walking or running, went on biking…"

Allan replied to Joe Schmoe's discussion 606 Status?
"Weird, Metra doesn't permit skis? Even in the luggage storage area on the upper level of the train? That's really strange."

Allan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I did do a short bike ride yesterday, but just to Spiteful Brewing and back on Divvy. Via using the Balmoral and Wolcott station from Bryn Mawr/Clark, then walking 2 blocks to there and back. It sure feels really brutal, whenever you bike in this…"

Allan replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I biked to the Wrigley Chriskindlmarket and back today(from Edgewater), and I'm proud I didn't wussy out and take a CTA bus or train there instead due to the fact it was colder than normal! I vow to keep biking, until either it's a…"

What brings you to The Chainlink?
I always lurked, and read the threads posted there. Probably should've registered a while back, but better late than never.
