The air temp is -20℉, windchill is -50℉, and the Lake Michigan water temp is 33℉. Because of this, your typical Kru member thinks to him or herself "hmmm, if I went for a swim in the Lake today": (1) the water is going to feel much warmer than the air; (2) good acclimation opportunity so the water is going to feel much warmer in a couple of months when the water temp is in the 40s; and (3) I bet a shot of Killepitsch is going to taste really good today when I get out of the Lake!

Full Moon Swim on the
Next Swim: McKinley 6PM
We will be doing a pre polar bear swim tonight at McKinley beach at 6PM. It's a great place for visibility of the Full Cold moon (on the winter solstice) thorough out the night sky (weather dependent), with a good backdrop of the city skyline as well. Then a hop across the street to Collectivo on the Lake for a warm up if interested.

The Wisconsin Bike Fed’s Santa Rampage Ride is tomorrow, Saturday, December 1st, and there is an after party being organized for folks on this side of town at Three Lions Pub.
The Rampage Ride is a bit of goofy holiday fun that benefits the Bike Fed’s many worthy projects. The Ride is the gateway drug that have led many astray into the joys of year-round bike commuting and winter riding. Details regarding the Rampage Ride are at this link, and details regarding Greater Shorewood Bikers and Active Shorewood’s after party are below.
Active Shorewood is holding its Holiday Party this Saturday, December 1st, 4-6 pm at Three Lions Pub (conveniently scheduled as an after-party to the Wisconsin Bike Fed’s Greater-Milwaukee Santa Rampage Ride). Active Shorewood (a loose consortium of Greater Shorewood Bikers, the Lake Michigan Swimmers, and the Chancellor’s Running Group), promotes year-round riding, running and swimming, and is composed of folks who don’t let a little cold weather or frozen water deter them. Saturday’s event is open to all like-minded people. Admission to the Holiday Party is free, but donations at the door to World Bicycle Relief are encouraged. Santa or other festive costumes also encouraged.
I hope to see as many of you who can make it out and about at some point tomorrow. Cheers.
