We had a very warm sunny day, so I took the road bike out for its first ride of the year. I rode along something called the Centennial Trail, which runs on a fairly thin strip of land between the Desplaines River and the Sanitary and Ship Canal. Along the way, you get a nice view of the confluence of the Sanitary and Ship Canal with the Cal-Sag Channel:
You're look due east, with the S&S Canal on your left and the Cal-Sag on your right. I think they're both pretty dirty, but they look nice enough.
The view is first rate,
the smell not so great.
