Chicago to Cali. Apparently active work on making it a national route is gathering a lot of momentum: http://grist.org/living/the-mother-of-all-rides-biking-across-america-on-the-old-route-66/

Awesome. That conceptual resonance they speak of often means the difference something becoming reality or not.

Don’t read the comments, jeebus. I’m going to go back and read the Trib comments about local cyclists being hit just to cheer up. Wow people suck.

ok, I think my interwebs are broken – there are comments? Is this one of those super secret things that you can only see if logged into MyFace or SpaceBook or whatever?

edited to add – I would have expected positive responses from the Grist community, I wonder why the (invisible to me) venom.

@ RF…let me summarize for you – blah blah blah blah….

As someone so eloquently put a few days ago (I paraphrase) – why do we need to know what every uneducated a-hole with a computer thinks.

With that being said, I fell for the trap and skimmed the comments after I read the article.

Yeah, I skimmed them, and it seems like it’s just a bunch of people claiming to be a better cyclist than everyone else in a really mean-spirited way.

If it’s not, I’ll pretend it is, because that’s really funny to me.

Thanks EJ!

I’ve been totally following this as I’m temporarily living about twenty miles north of Route 66. It never occurred to me to bring it up here.
