    The park district is also piling on the fencing to stop people from using the old curb cuts at Montrose and Wilson. They’re trying hard to stop desire paths from forming and force path users to follow their failed design.

    I’ve always disliked how the horse-drawn carriages often use the bike lane. I get that carriages are slow, but that doesn’t mean that they belong in anything but the general traffic lane. Besides, I never wanted to hit a fresh pile of poo with my tire.

    I just take Simonds Dr now. It’s not bad actually. Way better then the new soccer ball express.

  • It is so important for people to step up and help each other on the bus and el when there are crazy, rude and even violent people around. I feel for the woman who was assaulted but at least people stepped up to try to help.

    Like the blue line woman it is important too to ask for help especially by asking specific people around you. Often others will step up if asked but hesitate if not asked.

    If you run wide tires, go behind the fieldhouse with the clocktower. (Ie, go around the east side of the golf course.) Its lovely and quiet and car free. It connects to Simonds or you can keep on the paths adjacent to the lake.
