The Bike Is Good For The Soul

Lynne Kiesling

There are few better ways to start a sunny summer Friday than an early morning bike ride on Chicago’s lakefront. Breathtakingly, stunningly gorgeous, and a great way to clear the mind for a day of thinking about complexity, dynamics, and electricity policy.

This will be a biking weekend, too, so running across this quote earlier today was apt:

“Everybody wants to know what I am on. What am I on? I’m on my bike… six hours a day. What are you on?”

Lance Armstrong

Have a great weekend!

  1. Speaking of, I’ll be in Chicago next month to see the Cubs play out the string… or battle the Astros down to the wire. Whichever comes first.

  2. Yes. Is your house (isn’t it time for a fixer-upper report?) biking distance from Northwestern? Next week’s weather … low humidity, football temperatures (Go Huskies) promise to be perfect for a 15 minute bike commute from my place to class.

  3. Lynne — Yesterday I rode about 44 miles. Including a ride from downtown Aspen up to the Maroon Bells on a rental hybrid mountain bike.

    My soul is warm and alive…my legs are mildly sore!

  4. I did that ride when we were there in May, although because of time constraints I didn’t make it all the way up to the Bells. Next time …

    On Sunday we did a 35-mile ride from Evanston up to Fort Sheridan and back, and then we kayaked about 4 miles. Warm and alive soul with mildly sore legs (and shoulders) pretty much sums it up!
