You could try the Spring City Spinners - they're more of a touring club.

CZ Velo is out of Waukesha. http://www.czvelo.com/asp/home.asp?siteno=3478234

Team Polska is too. I couldn't find a website for them.

Road cyclist new to Chicago here, moved in April from Ft Lauderdale. Average 17-19 mph on 20-50 mi rides. Live at Grant Park/Museum Campus at Michigan & 13th. Finishing the move this month and (finally!) getting the bike from storage; am actively looking for South Loop/Downtown ride partners and clubs for serious rides. Thanks.

Rushville, IL here. Population 3300. County population under 8000. US Rte 67 and US Rte 24 meet here.

Have had touring bikers come through in the past as 24 runs out to Colorado and starts at Detroit. I always envy them.

And Bently6 I'm familiar with Winchester. Big high school basketball tourney there each year at Christmas as I recall.

Hello everyone. I'm in Portage, IN, which is at the Southern tip of Lake Michigan. I currently work as an electronic repairman for Arcelor-Mittal Burns Harbor (formerly Bethlehem Steel). My commute is a little under 7 miles. I'd be happy to chat it up with any other commuters in the area, so hit me up with a PM.

I live in Westerville, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus. So far I've been riding the bike trails in the Westerville area. I'm hoping to check out some of the rails to trails paths in Ohio yet this summer.

Moving in August to Streeterville in Chicago from London, UK.

Some of you guys have been very helpful already in pointing out some of the routes I have to look forward to. Many thanks for that. Any further info gratefully received.

River Falls, WI checking in, half an hour east of St. Paul, MN. Lately I do short (10 mile) rides from home, and 20-30 mile rides on the Cannon Valley Trail and Mpls/StP urban trails.

I was a few weeks back, but I just passed through. Went from Detroit to Findlay before I realized my stupid car wasn't gonna get me away from what I was running from. The bike wouldn't have been able to save me either, but hey that's life.

Gahanna, Ohio, a 'burb on the east side of Columbus. I commute 3-5 days per week when the weather's nice, and ride for fun on weekends (and some weekdays). I'm hoping for at least 1 century this season, and maybe to ride RAIN next year if I feel up to it.

I've never done an organized group ride, but I hope to remedy that before the end of the summer.

I used to ride the Westerville trails every morning before I moved to Gahanna. Good times.

If you're looking for a change, check out the Johnstown trail sometime - it's a nice path that covers about 15 miles from Johnstown to Newark.
