Did You Know?

Bus riders account for more than 20 percent of people using Lake Shore Drive every day while taking up a fraction of the space that cars do.

Absurd Commuter Vehicle #27

On may way into work today and also on a trip to my son's school on Saturday, I saw a frightening new trend:  reindeer antlers on SUV's.  Now I'm thinking what does that deer or moose out there think about us.  They are saying that there are these giant murder machines out there driving after us and now they think they can disguise themselves to look like us?  My next thought is to say that this is not cute.  You can't turn a supersized vehicle not designed to operate on a city street and make it cute by putting on a red nose and antlers.  I see it for what it is.  A reindeer would not appreciate the fact that your gas mileage is underage or that the carbon coming from the tailpipe is making it hard for them to live.


Haven't seen them yet?  Here you go:


On a more serious side (I know that was serious, too), I want to reach out and thank everyone who made Saturday night's Bike Town Bash the absolute best Bash ever.  The venue was great, the food was nice, the drinks superb and the crowd was amazing.  The organizing committee did such a great job and thanks go out to all of our staff  who helped get it together, set it up and tear it down.  Thanks also to folks who came and spent money on the great auction items we had.
