Another early morning ride, this time along the East Coast for a change of pace.
The pier at Port Mahon is a beautiful place to start the day.

A little bit cloudy. A little bit hazy. Yet still enough to create some beautiful sunrise colors. I really enjoy when you can see the sun come up… and see the ENTIRE sun perimeter because it’s shrouded a bit by clouds. Pretty cool.

And blah…

Simple. Serene. Sunrise… just blue skies without a cloud on the horizon!

Okay, so not every sunrise is idyllic.
Sometimes THIS happens! Luckily it was just a quick fix of a flat tire
and I was back on the road again!

Some sunrise drama this morning as heavy clouds were sweeping through Chicago…. which also meant gusty winds, but I’m okay with that. We had some beautiful colors for a few brief moments before the clouds took over and covered the sky.

And then gone… swept away into the clouds…

It was a wonderfully windy Century bike ride yesterday… The Udder Century…
with more than half of it straight into the wind or gusty side winds!!!
But nearing the end of our 100 miles, we ran across this farm with friendly folks
wanting to play! I’ve often said “The best part of biking is stopping.”
I’m always ready to check out a new adventure along the route!

It’s like a trip to the eye doctor…
“Which one looks clearer?… A ???… or B ???   A ???…. or B ???”

Can’t believe it’s already June 1st?! Which also means today is National Donut Day… and what better way to celebrate than by riding in the morning “in preparation” to celebrate guilt-free?! The more you pedal, the more donuts you can eat, right???

After last night’s rain, this morning was warm, muggy & humid. Just some low-flying clouds on the horizon… with a few more working their way in. Even when the sunrise isn’t all that spectacular… it is still pretty darn GREAT!!!

After a weekend of steamy temps & clear blue skies… it felt great to have colorful skies & cooler temps this morning. Sure, the clouds took over as gray for the day, and the temps made it sticky, hot & humid.

But did I mention that this morning was really nice???

Kicking off Memorial Day with another warm morning along the lakefront.
Kind of exciting to see that the lifeguard chairs are coming back as the City beaches
“officially” open today!
