Curious if anyone has done any cool Chicago-area art? It's near impossible to find much on Google for our city streets, especially cycling art. I did create this Strava club for local "artists" to…Continue

Heads up, the much needed bridge repair at eastern end of Centennial Trail is being done. However, there is no signage indicating you can't get through (traveling eastbound) until you get right up to…Continue

"Wow.  Sooo, how do you pre-map the shortest route for a celtic knot? First track working toward the center and then finishing working outward, or.... ? That's really well done. "

"Thanks ketoguy.  Correct on the top line of horse's nose!  One side of one of the ears was done this way too for example. "Art" is all about taking creative liberties right? LOL Some religious use the 1-stroke…"

"These are really quite clever!!  I like the bunny, but the horse is fantastic.  The neck bump, it's great.  Question - How was the angled line from the horse's nostril up to the eye done?  I can't find that angled…"

"Agree with Jim Reho! Thanks Yasmeen. I would like the forum to continue personally.  So much useful information there. I like that you can mostly find all things Chicago-cycling related on the Chainlink site. From group rides available in area,…"

"I think I agreed (I being generous with that 45-50 in my post on that)  The Cook County Sherriff occasionally writes speeding tickets in that area, but unless it's a 25 (which to your point probably means 30ish) it is a terrible…"

"If you drive 45 on that stretch of Central, you'll get run over; 55 is the usual there. "

"Paul you're right of course, and Anson's point is as important.  Meanwhile it's as if CDOT designed the space.  People flying down a trail, enjoying the day, and then we're dumped out of the woods onto a busy cross…"

"Equally tragic but perhaps this was a pedestrian, 81yo Soon Hee Park, and not a cyclist. Seems like conflicting reports on exactly where this occurred, where DPRT crosses Central or at Central/River Roads crosswalk?  Is it normal for the driver…"

"I frequently drive on this road.  Drivers are totally oblivious to the presence of this trail crossing, and the little yellow lights do nothing to get their attention."

"It's upsetting there was a crash - there's clear visibility (granted, this photo is not from summer). That said, I agree, 45 mph doesn't make any sense when you have an intersection of a trail. As a society, we tend to prioritize…"
