Hey all, I'm currently in Chicago for a few days on business, and I've never seen so many bikes on the road. I saw more riders in an hour than I do all week in FL. (at least where I live) Pretty cool! It's neat to walk along and see the variety of bikes locked up at racks.

Chicago is bike friendly. We have a full range of riders, everything from Hipsters to Time Trial riders.

Try to visit the lakefront while in the city.


When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

I'm heading up that way the weekend of Oct. 3rd. I'm thinking about renting a bike while I'm up there.
