May 17 bike forecast: A Windy City.

(WE REGRET THE LATE FORECAST.)

Wednesday: Gusty! Gale-y! Blowy! Yes, that’s a word. Look it up.

Not only does Chicago have the market cornered on 19th-century boosterish bluster, it also has plenty of the real-life climatological stuff too. At least tomorrow.

I’m told that’s a live image from Lake Michigan. Except the wind is real and not coming from 747 engines.


DIVVY REPORT: all stations operational.

2/4. All right if you can manage the wind and it doesn’t rain.

Enjoy your rides!
