A Little Early for the First Long Ride of 2015

Posted by on May 27, 2015 in Chicago | No Comments

Weather in Chicago is fickle, and in April I decided it was not freezing enough to make the ride to The Chicago Botanical Garden in the Northern suburbs. It wasn’t snowing but there were no leaves on the trees, we fought a lot of wind and the occasional drizzle. One positive part of the ride’s timing was seeing so many deer. Without leaves on the trees it was easier to spot all kinds of wildlife and the deer were fairly aggressive about guarding their space along the North Branch Trail.
