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."
Monday
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,…"

Allan replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"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?"

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.
