Hello from the Chicago 'burbs

Hi everyone! I just started to get into biking by riding to work along this trail that conveniently goes from my house to my place of employment. It's great! I love it and since the warm weather is here, I have been at it almost every day, even when I don't work. This forum seems really great and I really look forward to meeting you all! Right now I just ride a crappy mass produced bike which is supposed to be a 10 speed, but wo is me it stays on one gear and that's all I can get it to do without it being super noisy and sounding as if it's gonna die at any moment. lol. I hope to invest in a nicer bike soon, but I am still weighing out my options and I am so totally new at it all! Hehe, but I am sure you can all lead me in the right direction, huh? *hint hint nudge nudge* lol. I hope to talk with you all soon! I am hooked! Oh yes, and my bike is my main means of transportation as I don't own a car, and I love it. I wouldn't have it any other way.

Welcome, oranges. I'm also from the Chicago 'burbs. Whereabouts you at? North? South? East? West?
