"I generally meant all the businesses in that Wells St business corridor. I see plenty of folks Divvying to bars, restaurants, and other retail there. The bike-related were too obvious. :)"

"Ironic since Village Cycle Center is a couple doors north and JC Lind Bike Co is a couple doors south. I don't know if that is who you meant when you referred to the neighbors. One would think the three could work together to expand all of…"

"Like, just move over 4 feet to the curb and stop half-assing it. Seems to be too hard for a lot of people."

"This is saddening to hear. I don't think that Wells Automotive should think their sentiments are acceptable. I am sure the owner and employees would feel different if they had spouse or son/daughter that was a cyclist. Is there a diplomatic way…"

I might gripe in comments about the businesses and their employees who endanger us on the streets everyday and put it to my memory not to patronize them.

Generally, Wells Automotive is…See More

Tooscrapps replied to Dawn's discussion New signs on old bike path
"I agree. Putting the bike path with no real ped options in that area invites peds to use it getting to and from picnic areas. Clearly there is a demand for a ped path here too. But I don't blame them, I blame the crappy…"

"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…"

Tooscrapps replied to Alex Z's discussion New Pedestrian Bump on Dearborn between Kinzie and the river
"Let's just hope this design doesn't spread to the Loop PBLs. The elevated portion across the PBL invites pedestrians to queue on it when it's crowded."
