Well This is my check in: SE Ohio almost to the hocking hills. Very hilly country roads-some good, some bad. Lots of bikers come down here to ride. Can't ride as much as I like 'cause I am a PhD student, Mom of 3 teenagers and wife of cop so most of the time I'm in my car :-( I ride my beautiful '86 Bianchi

I live in Chicago Heights, Il - 35 miles south of Chicago.

My wife and I got on bikes last year for the first time in 30 years. We've been doing day trips around the Grand Illinois Trail this year. Favorite ride was Hanover to Galena to Apple River Canyon SP.

Any udder sout-siders out there? And when I say sout-siders...I mean south of 35th street...not Madison Ave.

I live in Beverly, far south side of Chicago, 95th and Western. I commute into the city each day. Like I do each Fall, I try to get a full head of steam and blast as deep into the season as possible because I know when January comes around that little voice in my head will say how nice and warm it is and why do I need to go out on the bike anyway. It's a battle I fight.

Not quite as bad where I live (25, gusting to 35) but I think that's the first time I've had to pedal (hard) just to be able to go down hill. Luckily, most of my commute was with a cross wind and I only had a mile and a half directly into the wind.

Wouldn't you know it though, the winds had calmed significantly by the time I was ready to go home...

Worked the Udder Century this year, rode Bike the Drive twice, RAIN, The Ramble, the Harmon Hundred and the Pumpkin Pedal (twice for 127 miles) I have over 3500 miles on the odometer for 2006. I had a few solo centuries this summer too. Good Times!! I want to do the Horribly Hilly Hundred in 2007 and I want to do a double century. Here's to a fairly dry winter!
