    Enjoy it while it lasts folks, looks like they're pulling the plug by next week (back into the 20's). Still, above freezing commuting in late December! Let's hear it for Global Warming

    Here comes the SNOW! To all the commuters out there today. Be careful!

    I live in the far north suburbs (I'm actually less than 10 miles from the IL/WI border!!!)... but I commute by bike and Metra train everyday to my office in downtown Chicago.

    At the rate the snow is falling right now, I may not be riding this evening.... good thing my bike is a folding bike and I have a shoulder bag it fits into.

    I miss living in the little Edgewater Beach neighborhood ...yes, with an emphasis on 'hood' for the block I was on. At least the gangbangers on my block knew who I was and didn't mess with me... they just wanted to sell weed to Loyola students it seemed.

    I used to ride my vintage muscle bikes and custom cruisers every night between 8pm and 10pm around Edgewater and Andersonville back in the late 90's. Maybe you saw me cruising around back then? Good times.

    Jose I live up in the Jeff Park neighborhood and work in Morton Grove. Once the weather is better I plan on doing my long mile rides (30+) on Saturday mornings. PM me and we can chat and plan something out in the near future.

    I was just thinking how the 'groundhog was wrong'.

    If anything, it's like we're Bill Murray in "Groundhog Day"..crappy January/February weather seems to keep on repeating itself over and over.

    what do you ride?

    I have been on my old Trek 800 that I take on short trips, in the mud and to get my legs back under me. I also have my old Schwinn Conti I roll for longer trips in the warmer months. I have been putting in about 12-15 miles a week right now. But got the Trek fixed and should be riding to work once more.

    I do have some cold weather gear so I'll ride anytime.

    Looking for anyone interested in doing occasional Sat. or Sun. morning rides north from St. Charles on the Fox River Trail. A couple hours. Or 4-5 hours. Depending on weather and weekend commitments. I haven't made it too far past McHenry yet, but willing to try.

    I've been doing a lot of riding at Bussee Woods so far this year. Moved to the area last June. So far doing laps has been helping me build endurance which is great. I'm not much for riding in traffic after getting hit a couple years. I might do some shop group rides but not for a while. Still working on getting my legs back in shape.

    What time do you usually ride? I have been wanting to ride the Fox River Trail but haven't.

    Busse isn't much better for "traffic" if you include kids and slow people Try Paul Douglas preserve just north of Route 90 and west of Roselle. You have a couple street crossings (with lights), but fewer people. I've heard poplar creek/shoe factory is good, but haven't been out there yet (I'm on the other side of 90).

    Steven from Niles coming out of hibernation. The usual routes are Gurnee/Waukegan, or Barrington.

    Somewhat temp dependent. Once summer arrives in full force, I try to get out there no later than 8:00. Otherwise, it gets too hot too fast. But I'm flexible. You would have the drive to get out here. What time could you get out here by? Why don't you PM me and we can try and work out details. It's a nice ride. A good amount of shade as long as the sun is not right above you. Not very crowded.

    I live on the NW side of Chicago, so if you're ever down for an early morning ride I go up the North Branch Trail quite often. Look for the guy on the 30 year old Schwinn that isn't 30 yet himself!

    I heard last year they were giving speeding tickets to cyclists on the North Branch Trail for going more than 8mph I believe is the stupid speed limit. I've stayed off that trail since then.
