No Snow Day For Us

Quite a brisk morning here in Milwaukee. The ride to work took a little bit longer with all the headwind but I still made it to work and was able to take a couple of shots. You can tell it was cold and windy when the lake looks like that.

On a plus side, 2nd Street has been open and clear of construction for about two months now (that's the Allen-Bradley Clock Tower in the background). Under all the snow, there are wide lanes for both cars and cyclists. It diverts you from the busy parts on 1st Street. A little more south on 2nd (with a left turn on Maple) you'll run into the newly renovated part of 1st. Again, wide lanes and a straight shot to Lincoln Ave, which takes you to Ben's.

Pretty good news for cyclists in Milwaukee. You can ride from downtown to Bay View without having to dodge a ton of traffic. I'm pretty excited to see if these new additions encourage more riding/commuting this Spring. Everyone wins; cars still have their lanes, cyclists have a path, and more traffic for 2nd st. bars/restaurants. Speaking of restaurants, f you haven't tried Crazy Water, you're missing out.

Well, more updates to come. We always have new stuff! Until then, stay warm and safe on those snowy roads.
