New commuter in Chicago

Hey everyone,

New biker here in Chicago. I bought my first decent hyrbid/fitness bike a few months ago, a Giant Escape, mainly for exercise and to commute to work on the Metra (train). I just couldn't do this traffic anymore!

Since then I've gotten into it and ridden a few of the trails in the area. My new commute is 7 miles up the Des Plaines river trail to Northbrook. Beautiful trail and so enjoyable before and after work!

Anyways, I have a few questions for the forums, but I'll post those later after I search around. I joined this site because every question I googled seemed to show up with results from this forum. Look forward to some good conversations, and learning about some of the cycling events and info in this area.

Hi, welcome aboard BF, good to have you with us. Drop in at the Hybrid Forum and check that place out, they have much the same interests as you do and they are a good group of cyclist. The regional forum for the Chicago area can connect you with others in your are for rides or other activities.
