I usually use my bike for errand commuting and to get out of the house and work in a coffee shop with wi-fi. I'm a solo pro so always working at home can get boring. Also, I load up 20-30 lbs in my panniers (getting ready for loaded touring/camping) and hit the NBranch, NChannel, GBay and LkShore trails for 35-60 mile rides. Haven't done the DesPlaines trail yet. How about you? What routes have you checked out?
Sorry about that. Julie and I actually met at 4:20 (turns out we were both running late) at the bike racks at Ravenswood/Lawrence so you probably were there before or after and didn't see us -- or we didn't see you.
Hey!! I was biking west on Willow & Hibbard around 6pm-ish and I think I saw you heading north on Hibbard on your tall bike. Julie and I had just parted ways on the GBay trail -- she going to HPk and me to Northfield. So was that you? Too bad you couldn't join us. It looks like you took an alternate route.
