Night Ride Home
We had a spring night ride on Friday's Critical Mass. Remembering the cold last month neither of our big guys wanted to take their own bikes yet, loaded up with some books and snacks, they wanted to do the ride on the tandem or in the box bike. Off we all went in the warm air. After a run south, and along the west side the ride turned east and we ended up at the beach off of Fullerton. Much warmer than March, April's ride was also far more populous. The view from the beach of the night city was beautiful. Green Lake Michigan waves roiled beyond the edges of the Lake Front Path. Soon those empty beaches will be filled with people but Friday it was just us and a few other stragglers heading home in the glow.
