"An utterly ridiculous exaggeration.  Yes, spoiler alert -- the police are NOT here to "serve & protect." As Upton Sinclair would say, it's a jungle out there. But I'll keep on riding fearlessly, without a vest or…"

curt(is) locke replied to bobweiser's discussion How far you've ridden in 2018
"August was a shortened month, with two weeks on Maui. Instead of renting a bike, I walked, hiked, snorkeled, and boogie boarded. So, August pulled fewer miles than January, February, or March -- just 317.2 miles and 2 Perimeter Rides. Y-T-D 5,626.5…"

"My wife and I rode it a few times back in the 1990s when we were dating. Our family has been making this annual pilgrimage since 2009 -- memorable because my wife had just been diagnosed with breast cancer (again.) The only time our boys cried was…"

"A Perimeter Ride -- can run from 90 to 100 miles. This is how I map my ride."

""Galena, the Midwest's Best Kept Secret"?? With a population of under 3,500, it attracts nearly a million visitors a year. Someone let the cat out of the bag."

"Read the Block Club article repeatedly and I do not follow your conclusion. As I vaguely recall, there were multiple bike lane proposals. This article doesn't really go there. It simply included an illustration, in which I fail to see how…"

"End of July with 5,309.3 miles Y-T-D (3,660.7 road miles +1,648.6 hamster miles) and 34 Perimeter Rides. Now trailing Curt(is)2017 by 706.4 miles and 10 PRs."

curt(is) locke replied to Yasmeen's discussion Another Cyclist Fatality: Luster Jackson
"No excuse necessary. Given the department's abysmal /outrageous clearance rate (or should we call it the "failure rate"?) on homicide cases, I have no reason to believe that issuing citations for doorings to be a priority."

"OK. Thanks, VW, for the clarification. However, there is much we don't know about the accident since the Sun-Times article is so threadbare.  We are left speculating. From whose perspective is this account of the accident based? Bystander?…"

"Furthermore, the Sun-Times needs to hire reporters who are familiar with the south side -- this was NOT in the Grand Crossing neighborhood. It's South Shore south of 71st and Woodlawn north."
