Took the 3 speeds out to Ft. Sheridan Beach today

For whatever reason, I have not been riding as much lately, mainly a bunch of short hops for errands and such.

I took the afternoon ride with Angie to the Ft. Sheridan Beach today. It was about 82 and when the chores were done, finally, we decided to head to the beach.

I filled up the air in the Root Beer Bike, and also Angie’s ’67 Raleigh Sports Green Machine. The weather was quite perfect albeit a bit windy. Still the sun shone and provided some great scenery by way of shining and reflecting off of Lake Michigan. The old  Raleighs are perfect for this sort of ride, allowing a smooth ride over some rolling hills and ravine inclines as well.

We headed down the path with some cold water and some bananas, which turned to be the perfect antidote to the uphills as well as the muscle soreness from yesterday’s deck refinishing project. When we got to Ft. Sheridan Beach after a 15 minute ride or so, we were greeted by great breezes, and some dogs that were enoying a serious game of fetch in the water.

After eating our snack, we headed back to the house to give the dog a bath. A great summer day.
