    Hi, This is me.

    Thanks Ron H for the welcome message.

    My name is David and i'm a 29 year old male living in Oswego, IL (Chicagoland western suburbs) and consult across the United States on Networking Infrastructures and Operating Systems.

    I started cycling last summer on a cheap no name bike. I usually ride with two friends. On my last ride of the summer I got a flat and had to walk 3 miles back to the car. I know, next time take a repair kit and pump with you.

    I recently purchased a Haro Mountian Bike and am looking forward to the warmer spring weather when I can hit the trails. I took my bike for a ride last week but theres still too much snow on the trails.

    I am interested in RC cars, could possibly add planes too at a later date.

    Anybody know of any good trails in northern Illinois or southern Wisconsin?

    Welcome aboard! This is a great place to hang out and shoot the breeze with other cyclists. In fact, I can think of at least two -- ViciousCycle and Oscar -- from your area, who might be able to point you at some trails.

    Keep riding... and bring a spare.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    Check out the Kettle Morraine South Unit trails in the Eagle Wisconsin area. They give you the best riding in Norther Ill and Southern Wisconsin.
