Despite Labor Day being a few weeks away still I find myself looking forward to fall. Summer has run its course and I’m ready for cooler temperatures and changing colors. The lure of the fall bike tour is strong. Bike the Drive is on Labor Day weekend again this year, and with Lakeshore Drive freshly paved it should be a spectacular Sunday morning. Century rides should start in earnest next month. Come October I suspect I’ll be finding every spare moment I can to go ride the forest preserves. Biking during peak fall colors is one of my favorite weeks of the entire year. I’m excited.
