The Chainlink

Hey there, fellow cyclists!

 

As the chainlink's membership approaches an astonishing 6,000--that's 12,000 wheels--I would like to ask how you feel about the website as a whole. It's been 3 years since the chainlink began bringing Chicago's cyclists together, so a time of reflection is in order. How has your life changed since becoming a member of this online community? Have you learned about new bike paths, or made lifelong friends? Have you recovered a stolen bike, learned maintenance tips, etc? What is your favorite part (section) or aspect of the website? 

Also, I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself--I'm a cyclist, singer, and writer going to UIC for education. the chainlink has definitely benefited my life as a cyclist, so I'm curious to see how it's impacted yours.

 

Thanks!

i think howard (southside) been artificially inflating the numbers with his multiple registration :)

I think Howard's back in the witness protection program and his "handlers" mandate the frequent identity changes.

Do we get a free gift?
This is so great, Julie. Just think how big we'd be if those Chainlink bookmarks were actually stickers like I keep thinking they are. Vandalism just isn't as fun when you need to carry a roll of packing tape to make your point.
Hilarious lady!

I saw a bike with a rack on back that I stuck a bookmark in a few days after, still in place. ? maybe he/she didn't notice it at first.

 

Active trans has stickers so... a roll of clear packing tape is like $2.

I like to check out  Chain Link even when I know that I can't do all the riding that I would like. It helps keep me feeling like I"m still part of a movement even though I'm rapidly growing old and out of touch. Chain Link helps me keep focus on the bike world, and the emerging world as well.
