White Deer Run GC, Vernon Hills. Long commute...but worth it. Beautiful country 'links' course that works its way through a very up-scale Lake Co. community. Cool, windy, sunny. No PR for the course...just too wet from a weekend's rains. But very fun nevertheless.

Note: Very gratifying to be able to get off the bus at 9am...and not sit again until back on the bus at 3:55...more than six hours carrying those clubs, swinging, walking, putting. Had a power bar and an apple. Seemed to be adequate until I returned home at 6pm. Six months ago, I couldn't even complete nine holes without total exhaustion.

One of the guys in the foursome following me came up and asked how old I was. They'd been watching me walking the course from the comfort of their GPS-equipped golf carts...and wondered how I did it. Well the answer is...TRAINING! Start in March, and work up to it all season.

Left the house at 6am, headed for the pancake house in Wilmette on the North Shore. But flatted when barely into Evanston, with the dawn rosy gold in the east. Walked over to the Howard L station, and back home for repairs. Ended up replacing tube in front; patching the abrasion leak in the rear tire.

I went through my bike stuff and inventoried it all. After 48 years of city biking, I have plenty of supplies to last the rest of my life...and Sari's. I toyed with the idea of pulling the 700 clincher wheels, and replacing them with my tubular wheels. I have plenty of brand-new tubular tires from my triathlon days. And my experience with tubulars is that they ride better, and don't flat as often. For instance, you don't get 'snake-bite' or abrasion leaks in tubulars, since the tube is completely surrounded with the casing, carefully sewn together.

Down to Rush University Hospital on South Side to pick up MRI disc and report for my trip up to Mayo Clinic next month for more diagnostic work. At midday, when traffic is light, sun is out, birds are singing. Very pleasant ride...through one of the US' major cities.

And BTW, a good New Yorker article about the differences in biking in the US and Holland is here.
