Amanda L commented on Rich S's event Prairie Fox (CBES)
"I would love to, but I have to be at a semi-formal event for work that evening. It seems like showing up to such things in head-to-toe bike gear after a long day of riding has been frowned upon in the past, so I guess I should pass this time. "

Amanda L replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"I did. Wind + dodging snow added 12 minutes to my (5.5 mile, normally 25-minute) commute. "

Amanda L replied to h' Zerocats's discussion Does the City of Chicago have a new approach to snow removal?
"The buffered lane on Clybourn has been a mess. To get to work I usually take that to Damen, which in the past has never been cleared of snow so I haven't bothered. CTA this week it is!"

I love my LHT, too.  Bought it at Comrade at the end of July and it always brings a smile to my face. (Well, after I got my Brooks touring saddle instead of the abomination the bike came with.)
