Before You Wake: 4th of July Ride 2008

When I was a kid my Grandpa used to tease us:

“You’re a good boy.”

Very long pause.

“When you’re asleep!”

I feel the same way about Chicago’s loop.

During a regular work day, when the streets are bustling with people and traffic, being downtown generally makes me want to run to a quiet, peaceful place. But early in the morning, when most of the world is still in bed, the loop is wonderful. Almost surreal.

I guess you could say the loop is good . . . when everyone else is sleeping.
