I had my first bicycle ride of the season. Yesterday was a spectacular day here in Chicago. I think the temp got up to at least 70 F. The sun was shining, the sky was blue. What’s not to love?

My brother and I loaded up the mountain bikes on the Mini Cooper yesterday and headed out for Waterton Canyon. In the last five to 10 years I have mostly done road bike riding and commuting by bike.
