Farmer's market season

It's a beautiful weekend morning and the greens and strawberries are ripe. Hmmm, what to do? How about cycling to the Grant Park market?

A morning trip

I had an early event at the Carter Center recently. It was a beautiful morning to ride over, even if it reinforced my dislike of shared paths (seriously, a jogger changed direction RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME). I think I need new brake shoes. I also learned that the center has a grand total of 4 bicycle parking spaces for the entire place, located in the most inconvenient spot possible (if you don't work there). If visitors stop by from the adjacent path, do they violate one of the scenic benches, or just give up?

Heels (only) on wheels

Having a baby now, and not yet having a good way to carry him on the bike, I find myself mostly commuting by train. Weekends are by foot, transit, or (alas) car. Until baby can sit well in a seat - or I can afford a bakfiets - I have few chances to bicycle anywhere. Running errands on my office bike, pictured, is the majority of it. And I get a bicycle commute a couple of times a month on my husband's days off. I know riding in high heels still seems far-fetched to some, but it's my favorite way to roll!
