His - Chicago >> Milwaukee via Cycle

You may remember from my post in late August that the {His} trained and completed his first triathlon this past summer.  While training was long and arduous, it introduced him to the sport of cycling, which he quickly grew to love and continued to practice post-triathlon training.  With Chicago's long winter fast approaching, the {His} and his lifelong buddy {who also completed the triathlon with him} decided to take their cycles for a long ride before they have to store them from the snow.  So, this past Saturday, they took on the ambitious distance of cycling from Chicago to Milwaukee.  Yes, you read that right... 103.55 miles done in about 8 hours, with several stops for refueling their bellies and the occasional photo op.  Impressive.
