Yes Chicago, with all its epithets given by poets, politicians and others, needs a new one for a new age. How about Fitness City?
At seven on a Tuesday morning I ended up on the path along Lake Michigan, joining a sea of people jogging, running, biking and skating. Several people were swimming in the choppy waters. What a great venue. The sun comes up over the lake, the path is smooth and well kept and everyone seems to know the rules of the road that separate the bike path from the running path.
Okay, things may be a little different at minus five degrees. But it was impressive to see how many people take advantage of what the city has to offer. And it has plenty. More on city services to bicycle commuters in my next blog entry.
Another pic after the jump.
