Nice first ride in the COLD.
Wonderful, beautiful, make me miss Chicago even more, pictures Gene.
ugh. my tired legs and the fairly strong W/SW winds mad my commute crappy. MapMyRide says I average 12 mph. Ouch.
Celtic for yes. My affirmative responses will be refined through a translator. ; ) .
Hey I gotta keep up baby. You post these wonderful graphics, the heart with a strap on harness, out done yourself sir. Gene is good for 1k to 8k words without muttering a sound. That's magic!
Yes but headwind plus coming down with a cold made for a slow, slow ride. But I've run into a lot of really courteous drivers the last few days- always unexpected and great!
Sounds like we need another "how to keep goggles from fogging up" thread?

My ride was less serene than Gene's as I can tell from his photos- but other than the idiot motorist that decided to swerve into my lane with no warning or signal or even clue that there was a cyclist next to her and almost smooshing me, my ride was uneventful and pretty easygoing. I think I need to leave the house earlier and go the extra 2-3 miles to the lake front path. Even if it would add time to my commute, I think it would lessen the aggravation. I envy you, Gene.
I go out of my way to get to the LFP as well, just be careful when the temps are flirting with freezing. There can be patches of ice and black ice that are hard to see, especially in the early morning hours.
I ride 3 miles to the LFP so I can ride 10 miles on it without worrying about cars or traffic signals. This distance is longer but my commute times are shorter. Some days I can make it from the north end of the path to Grand ave without putting a foot down and sometimes without having to stop pedaling.
This time of year the path is SO wide open. On my morning commute (6am is) I will only see a couple of cyclists on the path the entire trip.
