Adam Clark and I were having a talk about where stolen bikes go...I do a bit of metal scraping and see the pick up trucks with walkers, refrigarators, etc and bikes. But I don't think those guys are into stealing bikes off the street.

They don't want to go to jail. Anyhow - just thinking where they go and who's supporting their theft.
Hi Julie - Your Dad is great ! I worked for the Noskins for many years as a dental assistant and we sent a lot of referrals to your Dad for oral surgery. I did my CPR Training at his office in Skokie. I love to bike, yet can't make the one downtown. Unfortunately, I do not own a bike rack for my car. I would love to do a ride up to the Botanic Gardens in Highland Park sometime. I live in West Rogers Park. Are you interested? Let me know. I love to cycle. I have A Road bike.
