Arrived in Chicago last night. Stayed up late and re-assembled my bike. It came together without a hitch, well almost. I had to rework the attach points of my rear rack as they were interfering with my rear brake mechanism. Never had that problem before and it makes no sense that it would interfere, now, but nonetheless I was able to fix it with the tools I had. Went on a short shake down ride, today, and all is good. My bike is riding like a dream, just like it should. Went for a spin Lake Front Drive along Lake Michigan. Was it ever windy! Was a bit uncomfortable on the lake trail because the lake overflows onto the trail in many places.
It is colder than I am use to in Chicago, about 42 deg today. Took a highly recommended architectural boat tour late in the day but had to bundle up. Tour was excellent, learned much about the buildings and the waves of construction and styles of buildings that were built. Also heard lots of architects names that I will never remember. sigh.
More sightseeing planned for tomorrow.
