Today we accomplished a long time goal. We rode our bikes to work.... well to Corey's work. The 7.3 miles each way wasn't the hardest part, it was doing it at 6:30am. In the end, we surprised ourselves. We left with an hour and a half, just in case and made the trip in 35 minutes. We'll definitely do it again, it was fun, good exercise, better for the earth, cheaper than driving or taking public transportation and it feels great when those endorphins kick in.
The only real complaint I have are the buses. Chicago bus drivers are notorious asses anyways, but you really have to watch out for them if you're biking. They're not courteous at all, they don't make any room on the road for anyone else. Still the worst part was the exhaust in our face. We finally just slowed down so that we wouldn't be directly behind them.
Speaking of bus drivers, how 'bout them Bears. Ok, that was a bad segue, but whatever. This year, second week of the season, the Chiefs play the Bears here at Soldier Field last season. What a perfect opportunity to buy tickets, right? Wrong!!!
In KC, the Chiefs tickets run anywhere from $55 to $135 (before scalper mark ups). Here in the big ass city, the Bears tickets range from $65 to $350. $350!!! Are you Kidding me? It doesn't matter anyways, we couldn't find tickets. Granted, it's the Bears opening game for a team that was in the Super Bowl, in a city much bigger than KC, at a stadium that's smaller than Arrowhead, but come on! No tickets at all? Boo Bears, boo!
