Biking over to the Union Terrace on a hot summer night
We wanted to go out for a bite to eat and wanted to get a bit of exercise at the same time in the (somewhat) cooler evening air -- i.e., low nineties -- but not too much. And we didn't want to ride our bikes on the road, fighting heatstruck and dazed drivers for the right-of-way. So we threw our bikes on the carrier and drove over to Picnic Point and biked over to the Union Terrace along Lake Mendota. Perfect. It was pretty along the lake, and with a bit of optimism, you could almost feel -- or imagine -- a cool evening breeze.
