Best intersection to watch people do stupid shit on their bikes

Damen/North/Milwaukee in Wicker Park

Kind of a no-brainer, right? In addition to the ponytailed bohemian dude who'll do flips on his modified death machine for cash, the intersection attracts a host of speeding fixed-gear riders weaving their way through traffic and running red lights while oblivious drivers pop open their car doors or swing into parking spots without checking for oncoming cyclists. I'm not climbing up on any sort of high horse here because I've certainly run my fair share of stop signs, but this is one intersection where I expect the worst and am willing to wait through the lights. Seeing as I've been hit on two separate occasions while riding through this area, it seems apropos to move my internal security barometer up to an orange alert. —Kevin Warwick
