    In Evanston, the bike plan seems to be put down a mile or so of protected bike lanes so they can grab the headlines, while ignoring the rest of the city.

    I also wish that more of the discussion about bike routes talked about the condition of the pavement. It seems like most of the repaving takes place on the high stress corridors, while the “low stress corridors” have pot holes designed to damage the wrists of cyclists.

    Yesterday I took the red line to 95th St., arriving during evening rush hour. I noticed a significant increase in police presence around the turnstiles – no big surprise after what happened the day before.
