The Chainlink

...is going to be rainy all day, and then freezing in the evening.

I seem to remember a day last November in which the Chainlink was full of people posting about how they had fallen on black ice. I feel like tomorrow may be similar, so be careful if you're going to ride. (I'll be out there because I get seriously grumpy when I don't ride, and I'm gonna get enough of that during the holidays anyway)

Streets look damp downtown from my office window and it just dipped below freezing. Any early commuters out there have a road report?

BEWARE ! ! ICY PATCHES ! ! NOW OCCURRING ! !

Hoo-oo-oo-eee! That was a windy ride home! I feel sorry for those of you who have to ride west...

It seemed I had LFT all to myself. There were long stretches where I couldn't see a soul on the path. Between Fullerton and Ardmore I counted 14 determined runners, 7 other weatherproof cyclists, and 5 fearless walkers (a few of whom were out giving their dogs their daily constitutional - so good on them). OTOH, I saw no namby pamby golfers, skaters, skateboarders, nor any basketball, tennis or soccer players. :-)

There is ice out there, so watch out. I was glad to be on a Divvy bike with the fat tires though.  The wind gusts were harsh. I had to pull over and let traffic pass in that reverse wind tunnel on Clark at Lincoln Park West.

I remember it, only because it was well documented:

I took my "shit, nothing you can do" attitude and instead prepared for this winter by growing a larger beard. 

Awesome.

Bar mitts and studded tires served me well today. I expect to leave them on until, oh, late April or so.
