Chilly & cloudy, but well worth it. The clouds put on a dramatic sky-show… so many changes as the clouds blew by with the gusty breezes. Wearing lots of layers is good, but my fingers were still freezing… but not enough to stop taking more pictures!

Rolling into the New Year with beautiful sunrise bike ride. Nothing too dramatic, but then again… it just felt good to be out there! Still some snow & icy patches out there… but with some extra caution & extra layers I was all good to go!!!

What a wonderful way to kick-off Christmas Day with such an incredible present like this morning’s sunrise!!! I can’t remember the last time I had a chance to ride my bike early on Christmas morning… but so glad I could today. Mother Nature sure gave me a beautiful gift this morning!

Another beautiful morning riding along the lakefront. Hard to believe that Christmas is just a couple days away when the weather is this AMAZING!!! Guess I should start shopping soon… but c’mon… I’d rather be pedaling.

A beautifully chilly morning along the lakefront. Especially cool with the “slushy” water and an early-morning fog that made the path just a little slick. Still a wonderful way to start my day…. with plenty of layers!

Well, it’s been awhile since we’ve seen any sun in the morning lately! Its just been cloudy, cloudy, CLOUDY!!!… and gray! So I was excited today to finally get a sunrise to share… even if it only lasted a couple minutes… and then right back into gray nothingness!

After a long weekend of HOLIDAY HOME SHOW set-up, hosting, chatting, schmoozing & selling… it felt SO good to be back on the bike this morning for another AMAZING morning sunrise. Always the best way to start my day!!!

A chilly morning for a bike ride, but it was so nice to finally NOT have snow or rain!!!
Beautiful colors for a brief moment and then back to cloudy grayness!

Warmer, but windier! It was tough pedaling into the wind all the way south to the City. But let me just say… the ride home was pretty fast & sweet. Tailwinds are so much more fun!
