Secluded trails and remote parks are some my favorite places to ride, but I spend most of my days navigating busy city streets and miles of beautiful of shoreline along Lake Michigan.
I think bicycling provides the joyful glue between all aspects of living: exercise, recreation, social life, urban exploration, and even commuting to work. Among the most interesting places I've had the chance to bike are the Mekong Delta and the San Juan Islands.
Here in Chicago I support local bike shops and many related community initiatives. I tinker with two women's road bikes: a Jamis Satellite Femme and a much heavier, though no less loved, 1970s-era Schwinn Le Tour. The former is for charity rides and triathlons and the latter, shopping, commuting and touring.
I am really impressed by the effectiveness of stack exchange in enabling quality content. In the bike world, I think the volume of useful information to be had is matched by the volume of the voices eager to propel the dialogue. I would like to figure out how to replicate some of the strengths of stack exchange on our local bike platform, The Chainlink.
