I am glad but not surprised you are still into biking. Since we sold the bikeshop we have not been biking very much. Laura works at Chase in Elgin and I work at McHenry County.
Brad is going to school in Oregon. He is married and has cycled out of the Air Force after 9 years. Caroline is married and has two boys and lives in Elgin.
