Fall, I fear, is quickly coming to a close in Chicago. The temps are dropping into the 30’s and we had our first snow on Halloween evening.
With this in mind, I’m reminding myself to be extra-appreciative of the autumn beauty that surrounds me during my bike commutes. Soon enough, I’ll be surrounded by wintry beauty.
P.S. A bit more about that Halloween weather. The wind was so strong that crashing waves tore chunks of asphalt from the Lakefront Trail, forcing me to bike on city streets this week. Happily, I hear that crews have fixed all the damage now, less than a week later.
My intrepid friend Dan biked home that evening. He stopped to record this video of Divvy bikes blowing in the wind! Dan said, “I had put my omafiets (Dutch bike) down on its side to keep it from blowing away and then hunkered down to shoot these videos.”
Hope everyone is having fun and staying safe this autumn!
