The first Women-Who-Bike brunch of the new year marked an excellent start to 2012! The lure of beautiful weather and the highly-acclaimed new restaurant Nightwood drew 23 women, including several first-timers.
Because the restaurant was in Pilsen, about 8-10 miles from my house depending on the route, I met up with a group of six to bike together. Sunday morning is the best time to cycle and low traffic allowed us to ride side-by-side and chat most of the way.
After a delicious meal, we all spent a good amount of time outside, chatting and bike-gawking.
Martha took some photos for her fab blog, Bike Fancy. Other highlights: Purple!
Carrie’s Fluevog boots and the skirt she made herself!
Everything about this outfit with the headscarf, orange coat, lace slip, brogues, and leather bag! Comfortable windbreakers!
A pink DeFietsfabriek and glam sunglasses!
Letterman jackets, leopard scarfs, and chic black!
The two of us biked home together along the Lakefront Trail, chatting the whole way, taking the 18th Street protected bike lane that I blogged about here.
Good times, Ladies!
