    Hello from Illinois

    Hi, my name is Gene and I'm a bikeaholic! I live in Peoria Illinois the biking capital of the nation (not!).
    I'm retired from Caterpillar Inc. so I have more time for biking & hiking now (if the weather cooperates). The only thing I miss about working is the bike commute. Nothing gets the pulse rate up like riding a bike in shift-change traffic ;-).
    I'm looking forward to interacting with my fellow bikies on the forums.

    Hi Gino! I'm over in the Cuba area! My better half and I ride a tandem in various areas over here, the traffic is very tolerable on most of our roads and the routes are diverse. We have many flats and many hilly areas. Good training area. We try to do RAGBRAI every year and at least one other week-long ride somewhere else.

    I also ride my single in this area. In fact I did RAGBRAI this year on it for a change.

    Unfortunately we're planning a Motorcycle summer this year and the TransAM bicycle tour from west to east in 2004 so we aren't planning to do RAGBRAI this coming summer or the one following, but plan on 2005's trip.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Gino. Welcome to the Forums. I'm a ways north of you but it's all Illinois, eh?

    Some years ago, I rode a century in your area sponsored by the Illinois Valley Wheelmen...good ride, lots of hills. That year the ride started and ended at the Wildlife Prairie Park. I spent the night in a caboose at the park. It was kind of cool.
