Bright and Clear Winter Biking

What a gorgeous day in Chicago yesterday!  The clear blue sky made the air feel clean and fresh, despite the city pollution.  There was no better way to experience the beauty than on a bicycle.


I biked to work on Betty Foy, flying along, soaking in the sun (through my SPF 46), jamming to PJ Harvey, and wearing my happy red coat.

During the day, the temperature climbed to the 30’s and after the ride home, I was actually sweating in my (second-hand) cashmere and wool.


This is the kind of winter bicycling I can get used to.  Winter is not all doom and gloom!

(As I type this, I hope everyone in the Northeast is recovering from the blizzard – yikes!)

    Not sure if you have a post on this already, but please share your favorite second hand shops! Those boots look brand new, what a great find. I love a good red coat, very “visiible.”

    You are just so alright! I really admire your spunk and attitude. Thank you! David Pearce, of Washington, D.C., and Purcellville & Charlottesville, Va. Hoping not to use to worn a phrase, “Go Girl!” :-)

  4. want to affiliate physical products, then you’d want to probably work with Amazon or.
    Failing to do so makes it certain for the company to falter drastically in the longer run. On the other hand, someone driving a car
    who sees a billboard, will at best be interested and might decide to get more information at
    some time.

    It’s also the shirt indicates their faith to the game.
    He would not let them practice wrong and he would not accept them doing the technique wrong.
    And if you ever find yourself in a street fight you won’t have but a few seconds to a
    few minutes to get your mind and body ready for the fight.

  8. I was recommended this web site by my cousin.
    I am not sure whether this post is written by him as
    nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty.
    You are wonderful! Thanks!
