Ken Gray replied to crista lopez's discussion Anyone else get their chains stolen off their bikes last night in Logan Square?
"I'm sure it was done just to be mean. I bet the chains are tossed or played with, but not sold. True it is theft, but vandalism is the motive I think. Sucks to be sure and really no way to protect yourself from it. I'm not an Eastern…"

Profile Information

What I ride:
Road, Mountain, Hybrid
The kind of riding I do:
Recreational, Distance, Around Town
About me:
I ride almost every weekday morning for about 8 miles. Working on keeping the blood sugars lower and the bonus is that I love to ride. It feels very freeing and a bit child like! I'm into some long distance rides too. I just finished a solo ride to Macomb. It was very cool, a bit frightening too. God sent a couple of Angels my way on that ride. Thanks!

Hi Ken,

I can help on Saturday.  Do you mind accepting my friend request so we exchange details and maybe phone numbers?

Thanks for the friend invite---wasn't even aware of this site.  No after consequences from that fall.  Those recumbents can throw you in a second once that front wheel loses traction.  I haven't done a lot of group rides in the past few years so I enjoyed the comrade of that Major Taylor ride a lot, especially with it being a perfect weather day.  See you around, I'm sure.

Hey Ken. I am Going to try and park near north. Polkahaulics is further north, and I don't want to ride all the way back to greektown. My old work place will be it probably. (Hermatage & Armatage)

I like your Mantis. I have a Gitane like your Raleigh mixte. I put chrome Schwinn fenders on it. I noticed we made the chainlink pics. Good ride tonight.
