Ernesto Lube replied to John Dow's discussion hitch or rack?
"Hitch. We use a Yakima Ridgeback for four bikes. Very versatile with 2" and 1.25" hitches. Goes on the Jeep Compass, BMW X1, and our teardrop camper. Even if a friend has a hitch and chooses to drive, he/she's got a bike rack that can…"

"After work, riding north on Dearborn, Uber decides to park here to pick up his passenger. Car next to him yelled that he was parked on the bike lane. You can also hear me. I looked back and passenger looked embarrassed and said: sorry man!"

ChicagoCyclist replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Pedestrians on Dearborn
"Yep, I know and agree.  For me, my reaction depends quite a bit on my mood, and on how much of a rush I'm in (or think I'm in).  But you know, that's the same excuse (and from a certain perspective, perfectly valid) that I…"

Carter O'Brien replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Pedestrians on Dearborn

Phillip Hutchinson replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Pedestrians on Dearborn
"The Washington PBLs are particularly bad for this too, as peds wander out onto the bus islands while waiting for the light to change. Pretty much every intersection during rush hour requires some amount of slowing down and warning peds as you bike…"

ChicagoCyclist replied to Ernesto Lube's discussion Pedestrians on Dearborn
"Well, one cannot ride too carefully here or anywhere in the pedestrian-dominated Loop.  Yes, peds can be dumb, distracted, etc. but cyclists have to do, I say, what I do when riding this facility (especially at rush hours) -- slow down, stay…"

Hey man, nice to meet you. Didn't you say once you worked in a music store on Michigan Ave where you sold trumpets.? That would put you at 410 S. Michigan.You can run but you can't hide. 

I boycotted this site for a few years, but your posts got me out of my funk. As Frank Zappa said, music is life. 

Hmmm, no actually, he didn't say that, so I said it on his behalf. I think he'd be okay with that, though.
