New from Joliet Illinois area

Good Evening and Happy New Year!!

I'm 54 years old and live in the Joliet Illinois area. I am a locksmith by trade for the past 6 years. I've worked in manufacturing for 29 years and found a job at a local locksmith after getting laid off. 3 kids, oldest will be 34 in two days, youngest is 27. Haven't done much bike riding for the past 15 years. I use to ride the trails along the I&M canal in the area. There are hundreds of miles (not an exaggeration) of bike trails that all interconnect in this area. I liked the looks of a fat tire bike that I saw in a shop in Myrtle Beach while on vacation but almost fell over at the cost. Most recent purchase is a Mongoose Dolomite from Target for $250.00. This is a seven speed bike. Its not the best fat tire bike in the world but it meets my price range.
