Re: Chi-town riders!

south side (FAR south side) I'm from Lansing, actually, then moved south to Bourbonnais, and now I'm in the corn fields of Iroquois County in Watseka. I've got friends in the western suburbs and have plenty of people in/around the area that are always looking for new people to ride with. Some also in/around the Joliet area. Where are you?

Re: Chi-town riders!

I still use the forum from time to time. I'm all around the Chicagoland area all the time. I'm out of Bensenville right next to O'hare but riding in lemont and orland park is fun. Nothing like picking it up on 55 as well. ^_^
Who else agrees that the roads in chicago need to be repaired?

Re: Chi-town riders!

Evanston, checking in... though the bike is still up in Wisconsin. Learning on country roads...!

tcmalker, how was Chicago Cycle? read horrendous things about their service, so I'm curious. They are so close, though..........

Not sure about the other guys. I didn't. Although it was my first year on the bike. I would love to this year.

Re: Chi-town riders!

I'm from the far northwest side of the city (Jefferson Park). Last year was my first year on the bike. I would definitely come along for a group outing.
