Blustery Cycle of Changing Seasons

windy city

What a difference a week makes in our fine city. Last Friday, the wind that brought in the warm temps was so powerful that a ride around town was quite a risky ordeal. During the week, the warm weather left and winter returned. Luckily this crazy cycle is whisking in spring-like temperatures again this weekend. Don’t let the opportunity to get in a solid outdoor ride escape. Get out the door and ride this weekend. Check the listings below for nearby cycling events.
