"Umm, that law about almost certainly has exceptions about construction or maintenance.
Two of those trucks are literally backed up to the spot they're working on with the doors open. Certainly looks like they they're…"
"WTF? There's literally work being done at that corner. Where do you want the workers to park their trucks? And it's not even a bike lane, it's a lane with sharrows! Do you also submit reports when the bike lane gets…"
"It's a safety/traffic flow issue. The turn after red, helps to clear out the cars hanging out in the intersection waiting to make a left turn. That way, there's less chance that the cross traffic gets a green while vehicles…"

Hey S, are you around anytime today? I'm catching a ride home with Timmy on Sunday but he's not available for me to drop off my car rack. Any chance you can lug it up and I can stick it on his car at the site?
I actually have a friend who wants a ride, but who doesn't drive.
It looks like I'll be working from 11 to noon and could probably leave at 12:30. I can always drive myself. However, I'd kind of like to ride up...even if it's on my own. Do you think you could give him a ride? We're up in Lincoln Square.
the group messaging system is down, so im reaching out to everyone individually. im just following up to see if you are still going on the camping trip to Illinois Beach State Park. we are actively securing sites and forming groups to make sure everyone has a spot.

question though--do you think i'll need to swtich out the front derailleur as well?
