Hello from the Western Suburbs of Chicago

Hello,

While I am not a new rider, I am new to this forum. I stumbled across it when I was researching bicycling and total knee replacement (June 15th) surgeries. I had a hip replacement surgery last summer; 500+ miles on the new hip.

I am 53 years old and have been riding bikes recreationally for 45 years. As my joints have deteriorated (its not the years, it's the mileage), I have tried to become a more serious rider. I fully intend

I look for forward to learning more from my fellow veteran riders.

Cheers!

Yes, very familiar with the Fox River trail-I used to live in Elgin. You have to ride early on a Sunday or it gets too crowded. I am closer to the Lemont I & M Canal trail now, but I usually make it out to North Aurora once or twice a year and ride the Fox River
