    We're around 3 1/2 hours south of Chi-town. I was just up there on Sunday. The threat of snow drove me back home though.

    Hello jayson.

    I was in your wonderful country uh...Monday. My son's marching band played in the New Years Day parade. I'm still a bit jet lagged.

    Loved London. Walked all over. I can hardly wait to go back (with my bike).

    welcome. What a great place to mtb. I spent a lot of time in the Dales, mostly walking or just driving around. Those trips would have been wonderful on a bike! I had friends who had family there so every trip over we spent most of our time there. I haven't really cared for much of the rest of the country after spending time there. I am kind of spoiled, the rest just didn't measure up.

    Yeh thanks everyone. There are some great riding spots hear. The yorkshire dales are about 45 mins west of me and the Yorkshire moors about the same but east, its some of the finest mtb'ing terrain in the entire country if you're ever here again Eubi, we usually watch the parade but this yr we were all just to hung over to watch a noisy parade for a few hrs so missed it unfortunately. Whereabouts are u from anyway?
