    Greetings from chicago

    Hello BF!

    I've been lurking around the forum for a few months now, and figured it's about time I got off my lazy butt and registered.

    As a kid in the 80s, I remember one of my first bikes was a sweet Huffy dirt bike, complete with the foam padding on the top tube. Biking figured into many of my childhood memories- riding to the convenience store to stock up on 10-cent Alexander the Grapes and Cherry Clans, and wandering the streets of Chicago after school until late night with our "biker gang".

    Just a few years ago I got my first road bike (Giant OCR1), which I LOVE, and it has jump-started my interest in biking again. I joined a few supported tours, having done a GRABAAWR and the last two RAGBRAIs , and otherwise just enjoy exploring Chicagoland in search of decent, pothole-free workout routes.

    Anyways, glad to be here!
