Hello! A beautiful autumn bike commute today inspired me to check in and share here. As I’m sure many would agree, autumn is the absolute best time for cycling. The temps are cool enough to avoid sweating, but not yet freezing. Despite the perfect conditions, the paths and bike lanes are relatively empty.
This morning, I set out with a cardigan and light gloves, but shed those as I heated up during my 9 mile ride.
My commute includes the beautiful Buckingham Fountain every morning. Lucky me!
Chicago still looks like summer, but there is a definite chill in the air, with morning temps hovering in the mid-high 50’s.
I suppose this friendly city guy is saving up nuts and cigarette butts for the winter.
I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather! I plan to be around here more often, so feel free to check in every now and then.
p.s. We are working on the technical issues (such as broken pic links) of our current web home; bear with us.
