    Hello from Belleville Illinois

    Hi,
    I've been riding for decades and did 4,800 miles last year. I was hatched in 1954 just south of Cincinnati over in Kentucky.

    I spent 24 years in the US Air Force as an aircraft mechanic and now work as a contractor for the USAF as a database administrator.

    I'm down to two bikes: 2009 Giant Defy Advanced and a 2011 Windsor Tourist.

    Married with 3 grown kids. They all rode with me including things like RAGBRAI. Youngest daughter raced in college taking a 2nd place in College Nationals one year. She also has won some 24-hour races once doing 355 miles. Yes I'm proud.

    Howdy, Jerry !
    I'm just down the road apiece in Cahokia.
    I'm not pokey, but I'm certainly not speedy... sorta half-fast, I guess...

    Do you happen to know my riding buddy from Cahokia: Ed Crews? He lives over on St. John Drive.

    Is that bike path in Cahokia worth riding? I've passed over it a number of times on the way down to Columbia to ride from the Market Place.

    It's called the Metro-East Levee Trail. It goes under I-255 near Hwy 157. I think there's a trailhead close to Triple Lakes Rd. It's suppose to be chip and tar but looks more like gravel to me. I need to bring my fat tire bikes down to it.

    My riding buddy Ed is rather large, but he can ride. He has a nice assortment of bikes.

    I have a bazillion miles on the MCT trails. I use to work in Fairview Heights and could get to the Collinsville trailhead quickly after work. Now I'm working closer to Scott AFB, but still make it down to MCT quite a lot.

    Thanks jsharr! One of the reasons I came over here was that you left the 'other' forum. Too few posters there to keep things interesting.
