To anyone reading this: This is me jump starting my bicycling recovery!

A brief history and explanation: Last Fall I invested in a high end (for me, that is) road bike, my goal being to eventually begin some long distance riding - something I've been interested in since high school. Cut to December - when I tore two ligiments in my knee in a sledding accident which put me out of commision until now.

Liz,
I live out on Wrightwood by Cicero, so thats my main route in to town..pretty damn nice except that every vehicle blows every stop sign on Wrightwood.
Theyre learning though ...slowly
Took the IPP out to Batavia last month.
Quite a haul out there...
Once you get to the hookup near 1st avenue in River Forest its pretty well mapped out.
Want to do the south route sometime about 100 miles RT.
Trying to get a loop to PAlos this weekend..inlaws live out there so I can get a good lunc and ride some hills.
Usually we truck out with the baby traler then hit the
limstone trails out there.
My wifes not big on streeet riding with Kasper he's 2.5.yrs
and 34 lbs and refuses to pedal his own rig.
I'm trying to figure out how to post maps and routes on this site ...?

Hey Liz,
Pete here...from the Shop on Carroll and Kedzie.
Here's a map for a leisurely ride I did on the fourth
after the rain subsided.
Easy 2-3 hours.
Granted, all the crazy people were probably in their backyards drinking their brains out at the time.
So little traffic then. Lots of deer in the woods around 6pm.
Iam thinking of riding Logan Sqr to Palos Hills on Sunday am.
Do you know of a decent route out that way??

Hi Liz,
I'm also in Logan and tired of the NBT. We sometimes ride Augusta Ave. over to Oak Park out to the Prarie Path, but it's nearly 10 miles of street riding, not my favorite part.
I'm headed out of town for a bit (have you ever heard of Bicycle Illinois?), but I hope to see you out there sometime soon.
