It's Halloween, it's Halloween, it's Halloween! (The Shaggs, 1969).  I can feel my favorite season creeping in, something about the cool air in the mornings and evenings.  Does anyone care to share…Continue

E-bikes taking the lead in bikeshare

There is a certain sense of inevitability to e-bikes now.  Slowly, I'm beginning to see some positives.  I will never regard a vehicle that can propel itself with no pedaling at all as as a bicycle. …Continue

The future (or already present) of scooters

Here we go.  Now we have the fat-tire 25-mph models out and ready for the bike and multi-use paths. The problem with things with motors is that once they are given an inch, they will rapidly take a…Continue

NYPD police officer explains to a cyclist why he had to nearly run him over and stop him "by any means possible", all for the cyclist's own safety.  You make the call about who's right (if…Continue

"I have a lot of respect for Mr. Forester. He is a kind of biking philosophy pioneer. That being said, I think he takes a very extreme position and is pretty much inflexible about it. If everybody obeyed the rules of the road, there would be very few…"

"Geez, good luck!   Those trails look super-boring.  Flat, straight, unpaved.  I think I'd prefer to stick with roads, and stop for a beer or something to eat at every crossroads."

"Understandable about the crowds. It is a 5,000 people ride after all. My sister and I try to start as early as we can to avoid some of that. But if you don’t like to deal with large groups of people then I understand!!"

"I disagree, my friends and I do it every year, I think the roads are fine... yea sometimes you run across a bum road, but that's par for the course for any ride I've done. I go for the cider, scenery, friendly people and great support!"

Favorite autumn rides

It's Halloween, it's Halloween, it's Halloween! (The Shaggs, 1969).  I can feel my favorite season creeping in, something about the cool air in the mornings and evenings.  Does anyone care to share their favorite fall bike areas, routes, and trails, in the Chicagoland area or anywhere else?  I'm always looking for things to do and places to go in southwest Michigan, for example.See More
