Chicago and Illinois on different planets
Got my mailing from the League Bicylists today. It had tons of ride brochures for the summer. Here were some things that struck me:

- In we are traffic. In the rest of Illinois, riders must not impede . Organizers reserve the right to remove riders from the ride.
- Route closes at 4pm (saw this at least twice) - what does that mean? These rides seem like they're on the street so how can they close? And if they're on trails, how can they close?
- I'll bet some of these rides are fun, but why would I pay money for this? Sag wagon is good, I suppose. Free watermelon is good. Free water, that's really good.

Anyway, just thought I'd share what's on my mind.
