"The gloves that changed everything for me are the $6.00 wool inserts for miltary issue Trigger Finger Mittens. Any Army Surplus store should have them in stock. On the worst days, I double them up and feel just fine! "

"I have never seen traffic on Clark St. as bad as it was this morning. From Howard all the way down it was bumper-to-bumper with cars stranded in the intersections at every red light. Did Evanston catch fire and LSD fall into the lake?"

First Marauder ride and it won't be our last! Great to meet you and everyone else. Thanks for the water bottle fill-up (I think it was you) It was such a good night filled with great people- hope to see you on the next ride.

Thank you for your contact. Nice to meet you. I am glad that you have your kids and feel the same thing. I hope I will communicate about riding bicycle with kids here as possible as I can. Thank you. Shuichi.
