Here’s a short article from Crain’s Chicago Business magazine, “Fair-weather bikers gone, but stalwarts plod on.”
Yours truly is quoted. Does this mean I’m a stalwart? Who plods on? Cool! If you commute by bicycle, you too could be a plodding stalwart.
The article also quotes the founder of The Chainlink, a fabulous website for Chicago cyclists. Anyone who rides a bike or is thinking of riding a bike in Chicago should check it out.
ETA: I must share my mom’s email response from North Carolina to this article:
You really are brave – braving the frigid cold, snow, and ice.
Be careful talking to strangers, even if they do have a microphone.
Aw, thanks mom! Don’t worry, I talked to the reporter on the phone after checking her credentials (otherwise known as googling her). I’ve survived in the big city this long… :)
