I just stumbled across this site and love getting advice from the threads so far
I'm a woman biker from the midewest currently living in Milwaukee. I've been riding since 12, commuting to high school, in Gurnee, IL....yes the traffic is insane there and there are no sidewalks.
Now I just started winter biking with a mountain bike (picked like the worst winter in 10 years too ), starting to get back into mountain biking (just brought a Kona 29er that's being built), and have a old Releigh Road Bike from the local collective here. Currently I'm missing my road bike like crazy with the winter snow and what not.
So that's me, thanks for providing such a great resource! It's been great for winter biking tips so far
