The Chainlink

Why is there so much positivity in this space? Am I just totally out of touch with reality, or are the people that occupy this site just totally awesome? Is this the norm? It seems like anyone can get involved, or ask a question without a gang of trolls jumping in and hijacking a thread or someone being negative. The outpouring of positive support that people receive on the Chainlink always warms heart and reminds me I am not alone. There is always someone who will lend a hand or help out and that is a reflection of the people that use this fantastic place. Whatever level bicycle rider you are, the Chainlink will have friendly place for you to find. How lucky are we that this place even exists? I would say very lucky. Just last night I met some fellow Clinker's and we all reminisced at how wonderful it was that we met each other. We wouldn't have if it weren't for this great place. I guess at the end of the day for me, the amount of kindness and community that I see displayed here consistently is what keeps me coming back.

I wish I could say I was partially responsible for the creation of this site. However I was not. You should thank Leah for that. Don't forget to thank Julie for all of her hard work keeping this place going. Alas the love that is the Chainlink is sadly not free. Please kick down some of your hard earned dollars when you can to insure this beautiful place continues to grow and thrive: http://www.thechainlink.org/page/support-the-chainlink

I feel like our community here is great. That is reflected in all of the people, rides, classes and establishments that utilize this fantastic resource for Chicago area bicycle riders everyday.

Thank you Chainlink!

Much love and kitten mittens,

kitten mittens?

Are they made of kittens? or are they for kittens?

Nope. I'm a conscious carnivore. As long as the kitten was raised cage free and fed an organic diet, I'm good with mittens made from kittens

Actually they are made of kittens. Wait, are you vegan or something?

JM - well spoken words have never sounded so sweet.  I feel the same way my man.  and good job on the Gannons meet up - and to Howie - see the glass half FULL for a change!

 

We love you both :)

I disagree with everything you say and will never be swayed by anything you do or say.

Fine, then I'm gonna have to say that you disagree with everything people say.  Try logic-ing your way out of that Doug. I hope you keep trying to figure that one out until smoke comes out of your ears and you end up spewing a stream of gibberish before exploding in a shower of sparks.

Truthfully iggi, I was sure that was going a different, more Flackian direction...

You are aware that this thread is a joke and I don't really think like that, right?

The thread is a joke and I do think that way. ;-) And I wanna see Dougs head explode too! ;-)

folks I hate it when there is too much love. kind of like the calm before the storm.

that being said - I love gabe, aaron and all my chainlink buds that have a bike somewhere

that is rideable and all who have had a beer with me (virtual or otherwise) lately.

 

now - who wants to help me re-light a pilot light on my newly swapped out dryer in humboldt park tonight?  I hate when I smell gas. just hate it. we can celebrate with a newcastle draft while the wet clothes

are drying. seriously.
