Ride On From Northern IL

Well I am new to this site. A friend (user wonkemtel) has mentioned it a few times so here I am.

I have been back in the saddle for a little over a year and currently ride a Trek 7300. The Hybrid fits my needs pretty well. I am a few miles ride from a State Park and a major trail network.

I am a Work At Home Dad and my main focus is my two kids, then work. Now that school is out the kids and I will do some rides with my oldest on his bike and the youngest in the trailer.

I am actually looking at adding to my stable of bikes and have already posted in the Recumbent section.

Ride On...

Hello Darth-Daddy, it sounds as if you have interests in quite a few forums...don't forget to check out the Great Lakes regional forum.

Errrr, are any of those bikes in the stable old steel lugged ones, by any chance? If so, we'd love to see them in the Classic & Vintage forum.

One of our most entertaining members is Dr. Deltron--he too is a stay at home dad, and has a recumbent. He paints bike frames for a sideline . You can't miss his avatar...

Welcome to BF!
