The Day. I spent Sunday in downtown Chicago with Melissa, ice skating, warming up with afternoon tea service and generally enjoying the beauty of the season.
The Ride. I got there by bike, a 14 mile round trip. Temperature around 30 degrees. My core got hot and I took off my coat for a bit (mom would not approve). The Lakefront Trail was strewn with heaps of salt, all ice eradicated. I saw very few other cyclists, unfortunately. Everyone’s missing out on the beautiful views.
As always, getting there (and back) is half the fun.
