I Love Riding in the City

NAME: Brendan Kevenides



Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?

Riding in Chicago is often like a chess match with Mother Nature. The weather here changes so frequently, sometimes even hour to hour, that a particular route is almost never the same twice. It keeps it fun, interesting and challenging.

What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?

Chicago is the best. There are so many riding options here, from busy streets to laid back boulevards to scenic paths. Not too many places offer so much riding diversity.

Why do you love riding in the city?

It sounds crazy, but I love riding in the city for the serenity it offers. Despite the weather, potholes, visually challenged drivers and lumbering buses, I always feel calm riding in the city. Pedaling the city streets means focus and movement. That makes the stress of the day just disappear.

Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city… Poetry anyone?

Change, focus, movement, and a free all access pass to everything the city has to offer. You just don’t get that in a car.
