Didn't happen. I wore a BF jersey. We are at the north rest stop now. Love this smart phone thing. Little P is still not happy aabout waking at 4:30 but like all bike rides he is enjoying it with his usual quiet appreciation

Did the North section at sun rise. Had a room for the night on Michigan Ave and had a nice time. Ride was short, only 15 miles or so due to my knee feeling like jelly. Home with ice on it now.



Sunrise over the harbor



Me and the Mrs at the North rest stop



The lovely Mrs. Kimbercop
