What's this doing on the Chicago Lakefront Trail #chilft ?
1 Reply

I find it disconcerting and embarrassing that cyclists leave their garbage along the side of the trail. If you can pack it in, you can certainly pack it out. Or at least pack it to the nearest trash…Continue

Fellow cyclists:We are all aware of some biases held by drivers about bicyclists, and it is safe to say that there is bad behavior from all road users at times. BICYCLING magazine released a survey…Continue

3 Replies

My idea is to meet downtown at Daley Plaza at around 6 and then head over to the lakefront so we can gather as many people and as many Divvies as possible. We can go around a few neighborhoods N…Continue

What's this doing on the Chicago Lakefront Trail #chilft ?

I find it disconcerting and embarrassing that cyclists leave their garbage along the side of the trail. If you can pack it in, you can certainly pack it out. Or at least pack it to the nearest trash can.While it might not be as bad as motorists invading the bike lane (or the ChiLFT) it just might be.  Feel free to post your own photos, thoughts, comments, etc.…See More

"The missed opportunity. How come I can never come up with a good, snide remark in the moment and it only comes to me 20 or 30 minutes later? So, the story goes like this. Last night (Tuesday) I had a really nice ride on the CHILFT from downtown to…"

Bruce replied to Yasmeen's discussion What's this doing in the bike lane?
"Right. I think the problem to the question of "where is he supposed to park?" is that it implies that parking in the bike lane is a superior option to parking on the sidewalk, or in the car lane.  All are equally objectionable from a…"
