Sometimes, on particularly lovely mornings, I find myself distracted and consequently late to work. This time, after a long night's rain the aroma of lilacs, crisp air and bright sun strung me along and you know what? It was worth every single late little minute. These flowering beauties debut for 3 weeks out of the year and right now this little patch of greenway heaven is my favorite haunt. Want to see for yourself? Head due west on the Midtown Greenway, starting at Lake Calhoun. In less than a mile you will have arrived. Once there keep pedaling til you hit Kenilworth Trail and take a sharp right. This will bring you to Cedar Lake and along another stretch of greeny goodness.
