Did You Know?

Half of school children walked or biked to school in 1969, but only 13 percent were doing it in 2009.

Lakefront Trail Conditions 2/8/10

I just rode the Lakefront Trial from Ardmore to Grand at 8:00 p.m. this Monday (2/8) night and the Trail is in much better condition than it was on Sunday morning. The only remaining stretch of ice completely covering the Trail is next to the Revetment construction between Belmont and Diversey.

There is a stretch of dry dirt on the soft surface part of the Trail south of Fullerton.

The Oak Street Bend is too icy to ride safely but only for a short stretch. I was easily able to walk the icy section and then there is at least some dry pavement between the Bend and Ohio St.

It is, of course, supposed to snow 2-4 tonight, so conditions may change by Tuesday morning.
