Elisa of Bike Skirt fame is visiting from Alabama. And yes, we are now simultaneously blogging. I met Elisa in Nashville at the Garden Party Ride, but felt like I already knew her as a bike blog friend :)
Elisa and Betty Foy look tres chic together. I need a matching scarf! While I consider Betty my “racing” bike, Elisa kindly reminded me that the description is not quite accurate, compared to her drop bar bikes. Just wait ’til I get her on Oma!
Anyone who reads our blogs knows that rain would not keep us off our bikes, so we set off for downtown via the Lakefront Trail, despite the steady rain.
Once we made it downtown, dripping wet, we enjoyed overpriced beers in the John Hancock Building, 96th floor.
The views were totally worth it, as you can see from the picture below.
Yeah, that was sarcasm. Luckily, the fog eventually rolled away.
We spent the remainder of the day walking the Magnificent Mile, buying red lipstick from an insane Chanel clerk, trudging up 7 flights of escalators for tights at Macy’s, and gorging on deep dish pizza from Giordano’s. A perfect day!
Cocktail Party Ride Details: Meet at The Violet Hour at 6:30 tomorrow. Ride leaves at 7:15. Easy and casual, meandering to a few north side establishments. Hope to see you there!
