Did You Know?

While the Chicago region’s population grew by 18 percent since 1980, the traffic increased by 66 percent in the same period.

Living the dream

Could this week have been any more beautiful? I don't think so.

I had the most amazing ride to work this morning. Not only was the weather perfect, but I hit all the lights at the right time and only had to stop twice. 

I normally take Clybourn to work, which over the summer sometimes seemed like I was riding on the Autobahn. Today, however, car traffic moved a little slower, respected cyclists and pedestrians and in turn made my ride to work so enjoyable.

I can only hope that this afternoon is the same.
