Bike The Drive 2009

Bike The Drive 2009
As is our May tradition, we rode in this year’s Bike The Drive event, and as always, it was a blast.
This year, Lisa, Emma, and I were up before dawn with our bikes on the back of the car, zipping down the expressway towards Grant Park. We arrived just after the start of the ride (5:30 am) and we rode the north 15-mile loop.
This year I rode my Specialized Allez road bike as opposed to the Schwinn hybrid I’ve used in the past. This was a good idea– the Allez is significantly lighter and really rides well on the freshly-paved patches of Lake Shore Drive.

After the ride, we had breakfast at the White Palace Grill, always a favorite.
Next up: the Miller Lite Ride for the Arts in Milwaukee.
