"That and the 'bike' path is about a fourth of a mile longer and narrower than the original trail. There are some real passive aggressive elements to the jogging trail at Wilson or Lawrence (I don't remember which) with sharp turns and…"

"So if I have to share a path with pedestrians, I'd rather share it with runners on the original path than with families with unpredictable little kids or pulling a cooler on their way to a picnic or a soccer game or a playground next to the new…"

"Gotta love the double standard.  Similar to the "walk your bike" signs on the Riverwalk. When are they going to tell joggers to slow down and stop squeezing by people walking? The whole separation thing is foolish when the two trails…"

Hey Dawn! I also live in Edgewater, right by that nasty Clark/Ridge debacle that you referred to. Anyway, if you take Ravenswood north, it'll spit you out on Peterson, just a few blocks west of Ridge. From there, it's not too far to that Target. Hope this helps!
