Forgot to mention that during my ride last week, I cycled past Waveland Golf Course. Heading south near Irving Park I heard a loud “thwack” on the path near me and saw a golf ball bouncing off toward Lake Shore Drive.

I’ve ridden by the course dozens of times over the past 35 years and that’s the first time I’ve nearly been brained. Either it was a very bad shot (couldn’t even keep it on the course; is that a ground-rule double in golf?) or a very good one (duffer prefers a moving target to the flag). In either case, I’m glad I was wearing a helmet.
