I know this will definitely be in flux, and I am very happy they're expanding, but some of the locations make no case.
Case in point: Irving & Keeler. I'm trying to figure out how you'd actually get to/from it without riding horribly inhospitable roads. And the closest station is at Irving/Elston, so are they recommending riding Irving?
Maybe some of these stations will finally expose the horrible state of many of our roads where cycling is concerned?
Except a) Keeler is one way heading north, and b) the nearest station south is Addison & Pulaski.
I get the idea of it being near the L station, but you need to be able to get to it. I live west of there, but even I'd think they should have put it on the east side of the expressway for people coming from the east. It screams "ride the sidewalk" to get under the Kennedy.
That's a tough location for sure.
If I might ask, what stretch of Irving do you ride?
Agree with all of the above. I used this station last week, thinking I could ride south on Keeler, and ended up riding on Irving which I do not like. Although it is better in the morning than in the evening. And it was a little difficult to spot initially. Overall not a great location.
