Woke up at 4am this morning to do Bike the Drive, Chicago's biking event that closes Lakeshore Drive off, to cyclists only. We started at Grant Park, headed south to the Museum of Science and Industry, and made our way back north to Uptown. Total: 24 miles.
I didn't have the new bike, but I was able to trudge on the heavy 3-speed Hercules. I took a nice 2 hour nap after.

Side note: a long bike ride deserved a good homemade meal. Warm quinoa salad, with cumin-peppered zucchini and tofu, topped off with sliced almonds, cilantro, avocado, and a fried egg.
