Planning (by Leah Jones)
I rode on city streets yesterday. Busy city streets with and without bike lanes. I had a wonderful escort and he sometimes rode behind me, sometimes next to me, sometimes in front of me. We’re both healing from injuries from summer/fall crashes and it was our first long ride.
I think riding with someone is the best way to get to know them and yesterday was no exception. This guy is super cool, easy to talk to and stops at red lights.
We’re planning to ride again next weekend and this is my proposed route. Yesterday I didn’t have a plan, just that I wanted to ride on streets and maybe I should have had a better plan. We rode from Lawrence to North on the path, then North to Halstead, north to Armitage, west to Damen and north to Lawrence again. 15 miles for me since i added a few miles to Edgewater from our start/finish points.
Hello, endorphins, so good to see you again.
