Edge City (10/7/09)

10-07-09 (Edge City)

Once a year, Chicago shuts down one of its major expressways, Lake Shore Drive, and allows bicyclists to pedal up and down the 30-mile stretch of windswept pavement. I’ve made the trip a few times, and while it’s a bit of a workout, it’s not anything that I would describe as arduous. In fact, the route is filled with casual riders, elderly folks and very young children, none of whom seem to be exerting themselves too terribly. So it will be a sad thing indeed if the seemingly healthy middle-aged man in this strip psyches himself out and fails to cross the finish line on his 25-mile, two-wheel trek.
