Got out a little earlier than yesterday and rode to Highland Park
Riding through Highland Park was eerie because 10 years ago the Sandy Hook shooting occurred in Newtown, where I live, and now there is shooting in the town that has been home to many of my relatives.
When I got on Green Bay Avenue it started to sprinkle
Picked up the Green Bay Trail and continued south towards Chicago
Fortunately, I was on the trail early enough that there was barely any other people using it
The trail dumps out onto a residential street but right before that I came upon this sign that I thought I would never see in Chicago
In Wilmette I got a little turned es around because I set my course to ride on an alleyway. Had to ride some brick roads - yuck. Cobbles are still the worst but bricks are a close second.
The goal of this morning's ride was to see the Baha'i House of Worship
Nearing the end of the ride I had to take Lake Cook for a 1/4 of a mile and got buzzed by two cars.
