Thanx and I will pay it forward

I was riding along the I&M trail about 3 weeks ago. I have 2 inch tires and didnt think my tires would puncture. Well, my rear tire went flat, I had tools and a pump but no spare, I was about 3 miles from Lemont. A guy named Mark stopped to help me. He had a patch kit, we didnt even have to take the tire off, he patched it, the patch held and I was able to make it back to my car (10 miles away). It was hot and took almost 40 minutes to fix.

"I like your post. I haven't tried an e-bike yet but a "new" left knee and the recovery process sure are helping me see the wisdom in it. Enjoy yourself, I hope to be out there very very soon myself. Stay safe!"

I rode about 100 miles on the E-Bike. I'm almost 65 years old and it was great being able to go up hills ( Valley View, St. Charles), and not worry about the headwinds. It reminds me of when I was 12 years old riding my stingray (with banana seat and…See More

I went on a riverboat cruise on the Rhine River (brag alert). On our day in Strassburg, I took a guided tour on a bike. The guide said he was going to be in Chicago in October and I would like to take him on a twenty mile ride through Chicago. Right now, I am thinking the 606, Wrigley Field (Alta Vista Avenue), Lakefront Trail, to the Chicago Fire Academy (DeKoven Street, where the Chicago Fire started. Lunch at Manny's or White Palace. Can you think of other sites to see. Is it possible to…See More
