Another beautiful morning ride along the lakefront… enjoying the warm weather once again, the beautiful clouds moving in, the splash of sunrise colors… and the crazy headwinds!!! Okay, three out of four ain’t bad.

What a wonderful way to kick-off my Easter than with an AMAZING bike ride
with my best pedaling partner Chrissy-Chick!!!

We had a beautiful morning ride through the woods on the North Branch & Green Bay Trails, around the Skokie lagoons, into the Chicago Botanic Garden and more!!! Incredible weather, great riding and over thirty deer sightings along the way!!! So much fun… maybe the best Easter ever?!!! And to think a week ago we had a huge snowstorm!!! Spring in Chicago!!!

As the temperature soared into the upper 70’s this afternoon, it was the perfect chance to hop on my bike and play hooky for the afternoon! Squeezed it in before teaching class tonight… which was good as the temperature also plummeted about thirty degrees this evening!!!

With a forecast for more rain & snow tomorrow… it sure felt great to squeeze in
a beautiful sunrise ride this morning before “the bad weather” hits us!!!

Snow?… really?! It’s mid-APRIL!!!!… in case anyone is wondering!

And yes, for the record… it is VERY DARK when I start out on the morning bike ride…

After yesterday’s crazy-cool-cloud-show… today was quite the opposite.
Not a cloud to be found – just clear skies & great pedaling!!!

After yesterday’s crazy-cool thunderstorm rolling through, I was kind of surprised
by how warm & humid it was this morning… and in a good way!!!
It finally feels like SPRING is HERE!!!

Clear skies this morning… warmer with less of that chilling wind.
Spring is definitely working its way towards us… as is BIKING SEASON!!!
And I can’t wait! to shed all of these Winter layers!!

Another beautiful morning that felt as though Spring might actually be here… kinda…
if it weren’t for that brisk headwind the whole way home!!!
