Nice first ride in the COLD.
Gene, Thanks for the lovely pics as always.
I was busy with some stuff at work this afternoon, so didn't get out of the office as early as usual. There's a huge difference in traffic volume between leaving at 3:20 v. 3:50...
not a bad ride this a.m. really. bundled well but by end of the ride my toes and backside were starting to go numb. for me I think that this was officially the coldest I have commuted in at -1 .
Yep, and I got home before the snow started.
Lobster gloves FTW.
The ride in yesterday was cold (the coldest this season for me) but tolerable, but the ride home was fantastic. I initially thought I was going to take Clark all the way home to Evanston but quickly realized that the streets weren't in great shape and that I would probably be better off on the Lakefront Path. What a treat. Parts of the path were salted and completely clear and parts had an inch or two of snow. Slippery but not dangerous. Certainly less nerve racking than Clark. The big bonus. It was beautiful. Nice breeze on the back, warmer temperatures, beautiful scenery and that peaceful quietness that takes over when the snow muffles the sounds of the city. One of my best rides home in a long time.
