About me:
I'm a lifelong Libra. Been cycling in Chicago since 2014; before then, I hadn't touched a bike since, oh....about 1987.

Oh, and I also obey traffic laws on my bike (including stop signs); DESPISE Critical Mass (although I'd be all for it if they did Critical Manners here in Chicago); sometimes drive a gas-powered car; and believe the Lakefront Trail is a PATH, not the Tour de freakin' France...can you deal?

My bike is a 2014 Trek Shift 2 hybrid; got a hybrid because I had read that a hybrid is a good choice for people who haven't been on a bike in a while. My bike's name is Syd. And if you understand why I named my bike Syd, then...well, you and I should probably go out and grab a Guinness; I'd invite my wife to join us but she doesn't like Guinness.
My other websites (twitter, facebook, pinterest, Google+, blogs, etc.):
