Hello

I found these forums while looking for ways to lock panniers to a bike. Looking around, it seems like a pretty nice place! I've been hanging out in the bike communities on another social site, so the positivity and manners I've seen here are making me swoon .
I own a Trek Verve 1, an Aventon Aventure Ebike, and a 60's beach cruiser rescued via estate sale that needs some lovin'. I also have two grungy bikes as yard art.

Hello BarbarianDiva, I was born in Rockford Memorial Hospital in 1952. I lived in Loves Park area until I was 23, when I moved to Ocean City, Md in 1976. I have lived just across the state line in Delaware since 1984. Still have some family in that area and I visit occasionally, last time in 2019. It is just about as flat here as in central Illinois.

delbiker1, next time you're visiting we should ride! Have you ever tried Stone Bridge/Long Prairie trails? Nicest ones in the area.

A little late, but welcome to bikeforums, Diva. ✌️ I saw Rush at the Rosemont Horizon, back in the '80s, when they were peaking. I mostly don't remember Chicagoland though, I was drinking pretty heavily, back then, lol. 🙄😉
