Mission Workshop Rummy Messenger Bag - $80

Selling my Mission Workshop Rummy (27L) Messenger Bag. I've had it for about 3 years now but haven't used it much the past year and a half. I stopped using it because I upgraded bags a little over a year ago. It still has tons of life left. In my opinion its the best messenger bag out there. It's waterproof. It can be closed in the tradition "flap down" configuration or roll top as well. The shoulder strap can be adjusted to be worn over your right shoulder or your left shoulder. Also comes…See More

"Like others, I shower before I ride in. I find that I can avoid breaking a huge sweat for the most part by carrying my stuff on my bike rack and not on my person (I put my backpack in my basket and don't wear it), plus I give myself time so I…"

"Pretty much my practice.  I work near the Daley Center and  have long abandoned Millenium.  I shower, ride, wipe.  I have a suit and tie job and it works fine most days."

"They may have a wait list, but the McDonald's Cycle Center at Millennium Park has showers for members and likely is the cheapest option in the loop.  It's a pretty quick walk from there to Daley Center using the pedway.   "

Places to shower near the Daley Center

Hey everyone. I'm going to start working at the Daley Center soon and I want to commute on my bike but I need to find somewhere where I can shower nearby. I'm not the most familiar with gyms in that area. I just know that the LA Fitness on Randolph is too much for just shower use. Any helpful tips are much appreciated!!See More
