Yes.

WEDNESDAY WEATHER INFOGRAPHIC:

Overall: high 75, low 60, sunny as heck, moderate winds from all over the place, but generally north-ish.

This is all very good, although the PM winds might bother northbound commuters.


CAT GIF WEATHER PREDICTION:

Tomorrow provides the sunny sky, but you’ll have to find the cat yourself.


DIVVY REPORT: A new station opens at Perry Ave. and 69th in Englewood. All stations operational. Up-to-the-minute updates here.

Tip of the day…

On the Lake Front Trail, sneak behind the fence near North Avenue Beach to take the new separated bike path, which hasn’t yet opened. It’s velvety smooth and mostly vacant, and you’ll get a thrill from breaking the rules. [Note: don’t blame us if you get in trouble. But no one cares and you won’t get in trouble.]

When the paved segment ends, carry your bike over a bit of gravel and you’ll rejoin the main path looking cooler than the LFT normies.
