    Good idea. When the school police officers see kids without helmets riding their bikes, they pull them over and give them a ticket (free helmet coupon).

    Are you going, Jumbo? It sounds like a wonderful opportunity for you to learn from other cyclists, and more importantly, meet them.

    Do it. Hell may be other people, but riding with other cyclists is great fun. The trick is to avoid the problems I encountered - mainly snooty roadies. These blog posts might be of interest:

    I will probably be riding on the MC trails around there that day. I am not sure how to get to d-town Edwardsville from the trail, though. Probably not hard and I might look into it.
