If we go by the forecast (somewhat risky), we’re approaching peak bike commute conditions on Monday.
Little cloud hat indicates mostly sunny.
Morning: High 40s to high 50s. Negligible wind.
Evening: Anywhere from high 60s to high 40s. ~8mph wind from the northwest.
Note the large temperature fluctuation from high 40s to high 60s.
DIVVY: All stations operational.
STREET CLOSURES: Aside from the crossed-out Easter parades and festivals, not much new.
OVERALL FORECAST RATING:
3.8/4. Quite good.
Big temperature fluctuation throughout the day is the only thing keeping us from a perfect score.
In other news…
As John Greenfield writes, black bike advocates are fighting back against CPD’s practice of targeting black neighborhoods for bike tickets. Police have given out a hugely disproportionate amount of cycling tickets in black neighborhoods, as the Tribune reported last month. Example: 5 citations in Lincoln Park and 321 in Austin during the same 9-month period. Wow.
Enjoy the pleasant weather, try not to get a ticket, and tweet tips to @chibikereport.
