This Xmas I'm giving sarcastic remarks, barbs and insults to those I love. In return, however, cash is appreciated. I can always apologize later as a part of my New Year's self improvement…Continue

"That's the irony. The McDonald's center is in a very bike unfriendly area. I'm not aware of any easy way to get from the LFT to the Mcdonald's center. You can't ride through Millennium Park. Columbus Drive and Randolph are…"

"Hmmm, thanks Skip, that's very encouraging. I put on my trusted studded tires early last month hoping that would get me motivated. Most of my ride is along the LFT, but between Oak Street and Grand, it can get treacherous. I'm still…"

"Hey, lemme guess. You bought that bike from someone in Texas? And yeah, I'll take the wind shield along with it. I also like the step through frame and the raised handle bars. Nice touch. Clearly built for comfort. What's the asking price,…"

"Hmmm, I was on the bandwagon for the Idaho Stop. This is way cooler. It takes the Crown Fountain concept to a whole new level. We can motivate people to get off their duffs and dance. We can have contests for the best dance of the week. Cars are…"

"There is some truth to the adage, you're as young as you feel, especially if you're on your bike. Psychologically, I'm still a pre-teen, although my libido is not quite as spry. Chronologically, I've been 39 for the past 20…"

Joe Guzzardo replied to in it to win it 8.0 mi's discussion I rode today. Did you?
"No, Lisa. You're sane, not a wimp. I wimped out last month and I even put spiked tires on my bike, but at least the days are getting noticeably longer now. "

"Wow! The crew in this thread are really hard core. My biggest problem is keeping my hands warm. I'll take a look at the woolen army surplus undermittens that you mentioned Dave, thanks. I was really bummed out when A Z Wallis, near the Uptown…"
