Crystal’s handy guide to spring riding hazards. Chicago-wise, the potholes, especially on Lake Street, are killing me. Luckily, they’ve already started fixing them. I’ve noticed that either the roads are a lot slicker than they were in the fall, or I’m getting more comfortable pushing the Blur closer to its limits. My least favorite thing about Spring and Fall is the sun always seems to be right on the horizon during commutes. I’m thinking about moving to a city with an east side.

Thanks for the link, illinoise. I forgot about the sun-in-the-eyes phenomenon! I’m thinking of getting one of these glare-cutting shields: http://www.shoei-helmets.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=36_33_87&products_id=162 – Crystal
Minneapolis has a great Eastside, it’s called St. Paul..
