Back in Connecticut and riding to OOF again with the Lunartics!
Another huge difference between here (CT) and there (IL) is the courtesy of the Illinois drivers afford to cyclists. In the three weeks I was riding in Chicago this trip not once was I ever buzzed; a car passing inside of three feet from the cyclist. This morning, I wasn't but a mile from house and I got buzzed. In fact on this ride I got buzzed two more times.
Leaving later for OOF means the selection of baked goods is meager and I had to settle for a Ham and Cheese Croissant. Nothing wrong with it but it's not my first choice. The coffee was excellent, though.
