So this past weekend, Chris and I embarked on our adventure! We cycled from Mundelein, IL to Chicago, IL on Sunday morning! Google maps declared it a little under 40 miles and an estimated arrival time within 3 hours and 20 minutes.
Sounds like fun!
We start our journey a little before 11am after a hearty breakfast. We were super excited and the MOST friendly riders on the trail. I do think we said ‘good morning’, ‘hello’, ‘hi there’ and ‘afternoon’ to half of Greater Chicago! This was of course in the first 3 hours of the ride.
For some odd reason, it took Chris and I close to 6 hours to finish our trek. Mind you, we were leisurely riding at a nice Sunday pace and did stop for a couple granola bars, an amazing cookie from Bob’s Market, a push pop and water!
When we got back home, we were exhausted. Butts were killing us. Maybe a couple knee twitches and a thirst for a nice cold beer that I have never known! It was amazing though, we made it…together!
Because….the couple that sweats together, stays together! 😉
