Who just got a ticket at Devon & York?

Not me.

But I was heading south on York on my Vino and saw a police car tucked way back in one of the airport gate drives. Moments later I saw you in full tuck flying north on a red/burgandy bike. I would have given you the heads-up signal, but I saw you too late. My first thought after you passed was, "He is so busted... ". Ten minutes later, as I returned north, I see a police car at Devon and York with lights flashing. Then I see you and your bike in front.

Tough break.




(Couldn't identify the bike. Rider had a matching helmet and a white jacket. Time was about 12:50.)

There are plenty of places to hide on York, especially before it becomes residential. I've never seen cops there, but I don't look either. I usually take 83 though.

Yeah, I take York south from Touhy maybe once a week. It's my "I have to get away from the office for a bit" ride. A nice quick 10 mile loop. Like you said though, I seldom see police out there.
