    It is exactly like this in Chicago. We have a very nice bike trail along Lake Michigan. When it is cold or rainy, it is a wonderful place to ride -- beautiful scenery, no road crossings, and hardly any people to speak of. I can ride as fast as I want.

    Then it gets warm and sunny... and the trail becomes all things for all people. People ride on the wrong side. People lay their beach-towels down on the trail and sunbathe. (In the middle of a paved bike path. Who says Americans aren't stupid?) Unsupervised kids walk into oncoming cyclists, causing bloody accidents. It's not just annoying, it's incredibly dangerous. People have no clue about safety, then they get hurt.

    Fortunately, we have nice roads to use on days like this... but the scenery is very boring and there are traffic lights every 500 feet. By the time you get up to speed you have to stop again. Annoying.

    Some day they will ban pedestrians and cars, and then I will be truly happy.
