Friday’s cocktail party ride took place on the coldest night of the season (in the 30’s) after a day full of rain. A great group of stalwarts showed up – a mix of old and new bike friends – and the result was an alternating cold and cozy ride. I love cold weather because then you get to warm up afterward!

I’ve mentioned before that a majority of Chicago cyclists quit with the first chill, and it was interesting to note that everyone who came to the ride is committed to riding this winter. We’ll definitely have to do this again in a couple of months in the snow. Something tells me the group will be very similar.
I loved hanging out with everyone, and Elisa got to see so much of the city. Cheers to fun bike rides!
