I inaugurated my Culture Caravan on May Day, heading to the VERS10N Festival’s Chicago Art Parade. It took a lot longer than expected to get the bike and trailer all the way to the West Loop. I was really lucky the wind was at my back, but I was still completely exhausted by the time we got to the intersection of Green and Wayman, where the Chicago May Day Art Parade had finished…over two hours before. I gave out some yogurt to a little crowd standing around anyway, though, and it was a great first test run!
Erin and Nick showed up for support and we pedaled up Milwaukee to the Polish Triangle, where I plan to hang out for a bit tomorrow on my way back down to Hyde Park.
