Spring is such a beautiful time of year for riding a bike! Oma enjoyed very much spotting so many of her homeland’s flowers during the ride home this evening.
I put her flowered basket back on for now. I could feel a substantial weight difference with the front rack and basket today, versus strapping my bag to the rear rack, but the basket set-up is worth it for the convenience and aesthetics.
The back street route I traveled was car-free for much of the time. Such a rarity in Chicago, which is why I’m happy to go 15 minutes out of my way.
Here’s a more representative “gritty” city shot. I think I need to start adding more spring color to my wardrobe. The tulips have inspired me!
I hope everyone had a lovely week of bicycling and is ready to begin the second half of April! :)
