Somonauk, IL... you’ll probably have to look that one up. ;^) About 60+ miles west of Chicago. Lots of long straight flat roads amongst corn and bean fields, with the occasional descent & climb for river/creek crossings. Lately my wife and I have been exploring the I&M Canal Trail from the end near Peru.

I live in Minneapolis, MN, right on the Greenway, near the Midtown Global Market. We ride the local rail trails and the famous Minneapolis park system trails. I love this city!

Grand Rapids, MI. I'm a stay-at-home dad with a garage full of bikes that I buy, rebuild and sell. I've got lots of spare parts for vintage bikes.

I'm in Rochester (n of Detroit) and am very familiar with the Michigan trail system. You have an interesting business and collection of bikes, plus some great trails to ride them on! We're doing OK here, but some of the most useful trails are unpaved. Once the White Pine is fully completed, I'd really like to get over to Grand Rapids again and ride to Cadillac and back (not in one day, though!).

My wife and I really like the Grand Rapids area. I've done the fall half marathon there a couple of times and we get over to ArtPrize every couple of years. Never far to wander downtown without getting some good Michigan craft beer served up!

Mount Gilead, Ohio - north of Columbus and South of Mansfield. All rides so far have been in the neighborhood gaining strength and making sure the bike and body will be ready for the Richland B&O Trail.
