Sweet days of summer, the jasmine’s in bloom. July is dressed up and playing her tune. Summer breeze makes me feel fine. Blowin’ through the jasmine in my mind.

Phil Lewis posted this to Instgram and it just about sums it up. BH and I had plans to see them 2x this year.

I biked to Evanston Friday night and Saturday afternoon. I also visited the beach at Evanston. Here are some pix from the 2 most recent rides.

North Shore Channel Trail is a 13 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Skokie, Illinois that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from May until October.

The trail — a popular pedestrian and biking path stretching from Lincoln Square to the north suburbs — has always been separated by the North Shore Channel near Lincoln Avenue. A new bridge spanning the channel now makes the trail a single, nearly 7-mile continuous path from the North Side to suburbs Lincolnwood and Skokie.

For me bike riding isn’t just a form of exercise but is very therapeutic for me and is part of the reason I was so depressed in the spring being unable to bike the trails. When I read that the North Channel Trail bridge was complete in May it was game changer psychologically .

Friday night a it was becoming dusk I stopped into Jersey Mikes and for the first time ordered a GIANT sub. This was the Buffalo chicken of the variety and it was damned heavy. 2 meals.

With almost everything closed in Evanston and by this time in the late afternoon I had almost 40 miles of biking for the day, I stopped into Hansa Clipper in Lincoln Square for a quick refreshment. Double Jamo on the rocks with a pint of ice water.

BLM the only band getting any gigs in 2020
