Mr & Mrs lexm brave sub-freezing temps, ride folders on Thanksgiving
What better way to start a Thanksgiving morning than 17 miles roundtrip on the north side of Chicago's lakefront bike path? (Apologies for cell phone quality pics.)
Mrs lexm models her Walz cycling cap with ear flap and the Sugoi HOV commuter jacket - the only cycling jacket we've found that doesn't look like a cycling jacket (hence Mrs lexm's attraction to it). She is riding a Strida LT.
A smiling Mrs lexm takes pleasure in the fog obscuring the top of the John Hancock Building.
Mr and Mrs lexm commemorate their first Thanksgiving ride together, obscuring most of Navy Pier in the process. Mr lexm's Chicago cycling cap is made by a local designer who doesn't put a label in her finished product. (!) He bought it at Rapid Transit Cycle Shop. He completes his look with the BlackCoat Work SFO jacket by Koyono.
Brompton M1R and Strida LT perform flawlessly throughout. Mr lexm's blood glucose is a mere 88 upon returning home. We look forward to riding again (weather permitting) on Thanksgiving 2011.
