weekend in chicago

November 3, 2010

Tomorrow I’m taking off for a work conference in the windy city. I’ve been to Chicago once before to run a half marathon with a good friend of mine. It was a great way to see the city for the first time – 13 miles on foot through downtown and along the river. This time around, I’ll be seeing the city from another fun vantage point – from the perspective of a saddle and two wheels!

I’ll be staying with Dottie and Greg of Let’s Go Ride a Bike and Dottie has already promised me a bike to borrow and cycling company around the city. I cannot wait to explore Chicago with my hosts! I’ll report back after my extended weekend out of town. Happy riding, everyone!

    So lucky, have fun. My two favorite bloggers together; can’t wait to read about your adventures. Now, if only Trisha and Velouria were there too, that would be an awesome read as well.

      Ha! I agree! I would love to meet Velouria and am also very sad to only be meeting 1/2 of the dynamic duo that is LGRAB!

    That sounds like a perfect way to spend the weekend. Enjoy and take lots of pictures for the rest of us to gawk at!

    Love the first photo! My initial reaction was “Cool bike helmet sculpture.” Then I realized what I was looking at, given that you are in Chicago, and having seen that sculpture in person before :)

    Did anyone else have that first impression? I’m sure I was biased somewhat by the fact that this is a biking blog.

    Oh, have fun! Dottie and Greg are the bomb:)
