Loan L. commented on Jakki Cafarelli's event Public Art Bike Tour
"Great idea! I'm relatively new to the city, and would love to learn more about my new home. Will try to attend. 5pm means I'd have to sneak out of work early. 5:30-5:45 would be better for many folks I think."

Hi Loan-  thanks for the welcome greetings! I'm not in any racing club or training group.  I'm training on my own for the upcoming Chicago triathlon and Chicago marathon.  I don't consider myself a hardcore cyclist, i'm scared of riding my bike on the streets next to a moving vehicle.  either i ride on my trainer during off season or I drive myself to a trail, then i ride.

Hi Loan, I noticed that you RSVP for Cycle for Change. Can you email me (hloworld@gmail.com) so that I include you on our roster and send you our logistics communique? Thanks, Howard
