If anyone was wondering about the cliffhanger of Monday’s post, I did not ride my bike to work. As many of you mentioned in the comments, it was not worth the risk of leaving my bike parked outside downtown overnight. Of course, as life goes, the snow storm did not begin until later in the night, when I was safely home.
Riding the L train is a great back-up option, though. As a bonus, at the L station I got to shake Rahm Emanuel’s hand, as he greeted the commoners and kissed babies and such. I wanted to say, “More bike lanes!” but all that came out was, “Oh, hai!”
Today I was back on my bike. Yay, bike! Above is an unglamorous representation of my winter wear, hat, helmet, scarf and all.
Tomorrow I’m flying out to North Carolina to be with my wonderful family for Christmas. I haven’t seen them since last year, so I’m very excited! Too bad I don’t have a folding bike to take with me.
