Country Lane

Autumnal Avenue

– I had to go and visit a new project site today. So I took the Tiger for a spin up Sheridan Road along the Lake. Turning off a small lane took me through a quiet corner of the northern suburbs in true rustic fashion. The overcast sky and splash of rain only enhanced the turning colors.

Swim Bike Tun

Mostly loops up Lake Shore Drive, but also rode along the busway, a secretive road between the Illinois Center and McCormick, and some sections of the south lakefront trail to see the runners. Nice team and splendid weather.
