    Northern Illinois

    Allow myself to ...introduce......myself..??


    Started when kids were small and bought a used Schwinn World something for 40 bucks. Actually was thinking just now of first bike. Don't remember brand but it was a 2 speed and shifted by reversing the pedals and braking just a little. It was "fast", at least 40 years ago.

    Rode off and on since until 2 years ago when I had to have bypass surgery. Wanted to ride bike for exercise so got a Trek hybrid. At first I was riding to get the recommended workout. Now I enjoy the riding and the exercise is just a by-product of the ride. Don't need to ride every day but feel like something is missing if I don't. Bought a Linear recumbent the first part of Jan for something different and as weather and my confidence on the recumbent gets better I am riding it about half the time.

    Enjoy reading the forum every day, Lowell

    Lowel,
    Whereabouts in N. IL. are you at? I'm from a western suburb of Chicago.

    I'm about 2 hours(by car) west of Chicago. Just south of Freeport.

    Lowell,
    I've been out that way (long time ago) and from what I remember it's very nice countryside for riding.

    Welcome!

    If you're anywhere by Galena, I seriously envy you... I'm in Chicago and it's flat as a pancake. We Chicagoeans suffer over here with our flat road riding.

    Again, welcome to our forums. I look forward to reading your posts.

    Galena is about an hour west of me. Hilly here too but not as big as Galena. Seems like every thing is a hill here. Either going up or coming down a hill.
