Waterford, MI .... Problem is that we don't have any bicycle trails here, so I'm biking everywhere else.

Perham / New York Mills area in MN. I just bought a Trek 1.1, my first road bike. I will be commuting 12.6 miles to work once the snow melts. Should be fun (better than riding on a trainer in the basement)!

It appears again that Rick Nash and the boys will have plenty of time this spring to ride with you

checking in from Milwaukee. I'm a student at UW-Milwaukee and was inspired to shift toward daily commuting via bike while living in China. I now get about 6 miles in a day and look forward to longer rides on the weekends. I ride a Kona fixed gear.

Right.... there ARE... in Clarkston.
I'm in Waterford, MI, not Clarkston, MI and at least 10 miles from your place, since I'm on the border with West Bloomfield...
We DON'T have any trails in Waterford, MI

I live in Oak Brook, Illinois - about 25 miles West of Chicago. I've just gotten back into riding after two years out due to a severely broken left ankle, and I moved to Oak brook during the recovery, so I'm still learning where I ride and getting my riding legs back. Before that, I lived in Plainfield, IL, and I'm m originally from Beloit, WI and went to high school in Madison, WI. Back in the day, I rode all over both Beloit and Madison on a 1975 Schwinn Varsity, which was stolen. Now I'm restoring a 1975 Schwinn Continental. ( http://1975continental.blogspot.com )

Fredonia, WI, north of Milwaukee and not far from The Lake. From here, quiet county roads lead in all directions, but my favorite rides are north into the glaciated hills of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.

hi

I live in Milwaukee, Wi.
New Berlin to be exact.
I ride anywhere between 50-150 miles per week.
The Oak Leaf Trail is my main path.

Yeah and you and your family can go look for a job in the suburbs and stop walking around Downtown looking clueless. I don't pay for city stickers because I do not drive, no fuel tax either and the other taxes I do pay I am glad to pay and contribute. Like I said... you can keep the Suburbs or whatever you consider Crown Point!

Edit: Oh, when it comes time to do some real shopping, partying, and dinning out, why not do that in Crown Point? Deal? Thanks...
