I've been concerned for a while that Bridgeport/Canaryville/Pilsen is seeing a greater influx in number of riders (a good thing) than the current community is ready/equipped to deal with (not so good thing). People on the North Side tend to be used to bicyclists being around all the time, but the numbers of bicyclists on the near South Side is kind of a "surge". I remember riding to then new Comiskey Park in late 90's/early 00's and being the only bike I saw the whole way down there along Halsted from the West Loop. Now I see a lot of us everywhere.
