So...right around the corner. I work in North Aurora. Drop me a line if you are ever interested in hitting the Fox River trail heading North some evening after work hours. I commute from time to time from Elgin.

Okay, there must be some deep, serious, symbolic meaning that the two of you posted within a week or so of each other(just jesting). I figure you're close enough to each other that you need to arrange to get together. Two Jesters together on some group ride. Probably an unbeatable pair. There must be some southwest Wisconsin ride halfway between.

Glenview, Illinois - I live right across the street from the North Branch trail, which has just recently been repaved. And just down the road from Hackneys restuarant.

Raced Cat. 2 back in the golden age of cycling - the 70's. Been off the bike way to long now. Trying to get alittle conditioning in. Gotta drop a few pounds. But feeling pretty good on the bike.

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio between Akron and Cleveland. Ride a lot in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Just got back into biking after 20 years. I'm riding an 1988 Schwinn World Sport and love it. Any other classic and vintage riders around these parts?

i ride in the boonies west of the aurora airport. i used to be on the country roads that took me around dekalb and hinkley. lately, i ride down towards yorkville and southwest from there. i usually go to silver springs park, then just experiment from there. sometimes i end up in newark/sheridan.

any suggestions for other routes to take in that area?

We've most likely crossed paths a few thousand times. Look for the slow guy on the Giant or Flyte.

Hey,
I live in Madison, WI. I've lived here for about 6 years, but I grew up just Southeast of here in a little town called Cambridge.

If you've ever been to Madison, you know that it's a city on an Isthmus. I live close to Lake Monona (you know, the lake Otis Redding's plane crashed into), which is about a 12-mile bike ride all the way around. Madison is a pretty bicycle-friendly little city, but not enough people bike here--it seems as though there is traffic constantly nowadays.

I live in Naperville, IL. I ride a Connondale recumbent and a Volae Expedition recumbent. I spend a lot of time on Fox River Trail and Prairie Trail between Batavia and Crystal Lake. Also southwest toward Morris and Senica. Just turned over 5,000 miles for the year.
