Recently moved to Niles as well, well Skokie. Would you mind showing me around? Got my first bike two days ago as well and I have no idea where to go for rides with low traffic haha
I am probably going to ride early on Saturday, around 6-630, possibly earlier. What speeds/tempos do either of you like to ride at? This is my workout so I try to keep a 18-20 mph moving pace with some sprints thrown in for good measure. And I know the decent roads and trails to ride on, but at that hour the trails are usually sparsely populated and pretty open.
Looking forward to my winter commuting adventure.....
I live in Matteson (Southwest Suburbs where the Old Plank Road Trail runs through) but I go to school at Lane so I'm on the North Side around Roscoe Village/Wrigleyville Mon-Fri so lemme know if any of you ever wanna ride
