A Happy Bike Ride to University of Chicago

Hello, there!  Since today is dark and rainy and I have to go back to work (sad face), I’m starting the morning with something bright and happy.  I just stumbled upon these photos and realized that I never posted about this ride.

On the last Sunday of October, a day of perfect weather, I biked to Hyde Park to enjoy brunch at my friend’s house.  Hyde Park is a neighborhood on the southside where the University of Chicago is located, about 15 miles from where I live.  After brunch, I took the opportunity to explore the area by bike. The campus is beautiful, as you can see below.

At the time, I thought this was my last warm weather hurrah, but winter has yet to take hold of Chicago for real. The high temps this week will be in the 40’s.

I wish I could post something about biking during my Christmas vacation in North Carolina, but sadly my hometown is not conducive to biking. Did any of you make time for a nice holiday ride?

    no riding for me either… just a quick trip on my bike yesterday… so it was kinda nice to be back on the bike commuting today. :-)

    As all of you might know, it is quite dark, cold and with tons of snow here in Alaska. There are however, people who do bike all winter. They are my heroes. I have to write a post on them one of these days.

    The weather in SoCal was spectacular during the Christmas weekend. Christmas Eve was spent on a nice bike ride from the LAX area to Venice Beach Boardwalk via the beach strand bike path. The colorful characters and tourists were in full force.
