Last week Sister Julie and I were in Chicago having lunch with some friends at public radio WBEZ. Afterward, we decided to take a spin on the giant Ferris wheel on Navy Pier. Neither of us had ridden it before.
Summer is here and that means bicycle riding for me. Having grown up with bikes, taken bike day trips with my family, commuted by bike, ridden mountain bike trails and long stretches of open road, I feel very much at home on a bike.
