Lake Shore Ride

Yesterday morning Steve, Sophia, Alexander and I went out for breakfast and then headed downtown for a relaxing bike ride. We started at Lincoln Park Zoo, stopped off at Navy Pier to play a bit and then continued on past Buckingham Fountain, Shedd Aquarium and the crowds of people heading to the Bears game.

This ride was slow paced and easy. The most difficult part was weaving in and out of joggers, walkers, and other bikers. All four of us knew that we could stop as often as we wanted to explore and have fun which made this type of ride different than when we ride forest preserves. Plus, I liked this ride because it was fun to watch the numerous people out and about exercising, talking, and enjoying the day and I like having the city on one side of me and Lake Michigan on the other as I ride.
