Queen of the Road

Ladies and germs, I would like to introduce you to my new bike!

It's actually a used bike, but it's new to me! I picked it up at Nearly New Bikes on Broadway and Sheridan. They take and old frame and totally update the bike, so it' guessed it, nearly new! It's super lightweight, which has taken some getting used to, but I love it.

I am soaking up the last few weeks/months of ride-able weather and enjoying being soooo close to the lakefront path. It's such a luxury to live so close to the lake and I'm trying to take advantage of it best I can!

My car is on the way out, so it's bike and public transit from this point on. Green transit all the way, baby!

I'm thinking of calling her my Black Beauty...

Kudos on the new acquisition and the move towards civilized means of transport. Cars in the windy city are both a hassle (street cleaning...) and unnecessary. Have you heard of igo?

Would we could convince the masses to civilize themselves into greenery in this kind of fashion. We'd have better public transportation and maybe make a little dent on emissions. Most importantly, though, it would signify that a lot of people are conscientious of this environment of ours and its troubles. Would, oh would.
