In early July I noticed that the Divvy bike sharing program stations were popping up all over downtown Chicago. A few days ago I read that Logan Square was getting a few stations and this morning I spotted one of them at California and Milwaukee. Pay no attention to the fact that it is labelled California and Palmer, this station is at California and Milwaukee. Palmer is a few blocks south of this intersection. Exciting. If my situation were different, I might give it a try!

On Saturday, Steph and I had a bit of time to kill before our plans for the day, so we watched the Tour de Fat bike parade and then headed over to the festival. Last year I skipped going to the festival at all, but before that went several years in a row: 2009, 2010, 2011. In 2011 we got burned when Jess was visiting and a bunch of our friends showed up and they didn’t have enough food. I’m happy to report that this year they had somewhere between 8-10 food trucks with all different things from fried chicken to tacos to cupcakes. Steph and I got some tamales, gaucamole and chips, and empanadas for lunch. We walked around a bit, but I couldn’t drink or ride the crazy bikes, so we headed back home after a while. Steph has been to Tour de Fat when the tour used to stop in Milwaukee. We both thought that the fest was pretty much the same every single year. Still fun, but hey, maybe switch it up a bit!

I’ve been seeing these Divvy bikes everywhere downtown. Looks like this bike sharing program just launched a week or so ago.
