Allan replied to Brian S's discussion When will the Trail Separation project be completed?
"I forgot about that Montrose underpass, east of LSD. Now I see why the Park District routed the bike trail east of the original path, north of Montrose. I suspect a lot of bikers still use the old route, though."

Allan replied to David S.'s discussion What's your favorite route? An experience on the back streets
"I wish when the original MCBM was made on google maps( https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=17mPyCktdurhbwt9HcBZFSJrXmLBKioYs&ll=41.97332796602258%2C-87.70618751657935&z=15 ), that you had done a few things differently such…"

Allan commented on Serge Lubomudrov's group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"One last update about Howard Street Brewery: someone from that brewery responded to some comment on their facebook page, and he said they were shooting for a September 2019 opening. No exact date posted yet, when their taproom will open up. Also…"

Allan replied to Yasmeen's discussion Scooters: What Does This Mean for People That Ride Bikes?
"Same here! That's interesting you saw one there, of all places. Since you'd think the furthest east one could ride a scooter, was on Cortland Ave west of the river."

Allan replied to Yasmeen's discussion Scooters: What Does This Mean for People That Ride Bikes?
"Correct, the test area for scooters is south of Irving Park, west of the Chicago River, Halsted, then north of…"

Allan replied to David S.'s discussion What's your favorite route? An experience on the back streets
"Definitely, the fact I couldn't figure out for sure if one could bike and cut through that Cubs parking lot is really annoying me. At least say, on non-Cubs game days(regular days). My gut suspicion is that you can't, and like I said in…"

"Map of that workaround. And I should note you do NOT use Rockwell south of Irving, but just use the park entrance into Revere that's just to the east of Rockwell(or vice versa, then cut onto Rockwell St. north of…"

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"Thanks for responding. Sorry I've been busy as f, so forgot to reply till now. Maybe I'll do another trip over to Columbus Park and that Harrison Ave area, on my own again one of these days. Regardless if there's a special event going…"

Allan replied to Serge Lubomudrov's discussion Dooring on Broadway and Belmont
"Oh, okay. Thanks for correcting that it was from James, and not you."

Allan replied to David S.'s discussion What's your favorite route? An experience on the back streets
"I turned on the satellite mode of google maps, and am struggling to figure that out myself. Which is the part just north of Bradley Place between Bradley Business Center(this is the huge building on the north side of the street) and ASI Signage…"

Allan commented on Serge Lubomudrov's group Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society
"Yep Jared, I also looked on the facebook page for Howard Street Brewing, and didn't see any official posts that absolutely confirmed their taproom was now open. That said, I hadn't revisited North Shore Cider Company, since they were in…"

Allan replied to Brian S's discussion When will the Trail Separation project be completed?
"I really have no effing clue why the Chicago Park District decided to designate the bike trail as east of Cricket Hill and north of Montrose, when the trail separation project was finished a year or 2 ago. I still believe IMO, that the designated…"

Allan replied to Brian S's discussion What's it called when the Divvy rack is full and you have to circle looking for a space?
"This happens to me every so often(moreso late at night, as it tends to be the only time this station can occasionally get full), with the station at Clark/Bryn Mawr. If that occurs, then usually I go to the one at Bryn Mawr/Ridge/Broadway, or…"

Allan replied to Noah Kleinschmidt's discussion Hoping to bike from Chi or Milwaukee to Mpls, wanna join?
"Which bus between Madison and Chicago, allows bikes? And are there any rules about how to place a bike into the baggage area, or no rules at all and you just place one into the baggage area on the outside of the bus under the seats? I wonder if you…"

Allan replied to Serge Lubomudrov's discussion Dooring on Broadway and Belmont
"Good job in getting this photo, Serge! And too bad to hear this person has done other things before, like double parking in PBLs. You'd think he be cited, by now."

Allan replied to Matt Talbert's discussion Paving the Des Plaines River Trail?
"I assume by IPP, you mean the Illinois Prairie Path? Myself, I'd lean towards paving the DPRT, but that is just me."

What brings you to The Chainlink?
