From winter to spring…

Right now – late March through early April – is the most refreshing time to ride a bike in Chicago.  The visible signs of fading winter and approaching spring make me so grateful, I could weep.  The chill in the air is enough to make my cheeks rosy, not to cause frost bite.  The sun is still up and slowly setting as I make my way home.  And the Lakefront Trail is calm and peaceful, not yet overcrowded.

I hope you all are enjoying your bike rides just as much!

    Great photos Dottie, thanks.
    It’s really assuring to see the ice breaking up –
    cold weather slowly receding to where it belongs…. Canada, HA!

    I just stumbled upon your blog too, and I’m really enjoying reading the archived posts and comments. I especially liked “You know you’re a bicycle commuter when…” I’ve had to use my car sporadically since January, but last week I turned in my sticker. I declare it SPRING!
