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!

Another warm one…but a beautiful sunrise ride to kick-off the day before I head back out to the ‘burbs for Day Two of the Schaumburg Prairie Arts Festival.

With the added bonus of getting to ride all the way home on Lake Shore Drive which is closed this morning for the annual “Bike The Drive” event.

A beautifully warm morning with clear skies.
Feels like Summer might actually be on it’s way?! Finally.

Sweeping clouds with a chilly breeze blowing in off the lake.
A red sky this morning… might mean we’re in for some bad weather later today?

Another beautiful morning as the temperature continues to rise. Spring is definitely here!
It started out cool, but warmed up quickly as I pedaled and the clouds swept across the sky.
An added bonus with waves crashing along the shoreline!
