    Just got an email that Divvy is temporarily closed due to the neverending storm.

  • Yep, we’ve broadcasted the news via social media. Can’t blame them. Even I, a dedicated winter cyclist, am literally swapping my bike for XC skis and/or snowshoes today. Here’s an old article I wrote about urban skiing: http://newcity.com/2011/02/01/ski-for-yourself-whipping-winter-on-its-own-terms/ and another about snowshoeing the entire Lakefront Trail during the great snowpocalypse of 2011: http://www.timeoutchicago.com/things-to-do/this-week-in-chicago/215785/snowpocalypse-snowshoeing Be careful traveling today and have fun out there folks!

    I was pretty surprised that they hadn’t shut it down yesterday. I’ll be walking past a few stations soon and I’m interested to see if they’ve been removing bikes or if they’re going to leave them there during the storm.

    I snowshoed around Logan Square during a blizzard a couple of years ago. I might do it again tonight.
