About me:
I've been getting into biking more and more. I've also recently started doing Critical Mass. I heard about this web site when I took a bike maintenance class at West Town Bikes. I'd love to meet more people who are into bikes - especially people in my area (Logan Square) who are interested in looking for riding partners.

Ning won't let me select my actual birth year (which is much farther back), but thanks! It certainly isn't as though I try to take care of myself, no thanks to other cyclists.

A while back I had long hair and for some reason gay guys started hitting on me a lot. At first I took it as a complement and joked about it but after a while my friends started taking the joke to far. So i started giving the guys my friends numbers. The jokes ended pretty fast after that. Things like that can ruin a night if your in a certain type of mood. hope it wasn't anyone on the ride who made that comment. Oh and as a disclaimer. Not that there's anything wrong with that- Seinfeld

yeah I'm in the same boat: have to wear a suit! I ride when we have the ol business casual days, which is every Friday and at least 3 or 4 times every month.. but a lot of times I ride down after work and leave my bike here overnight with a change of clothes, then take the el home. Nothing like getting off work, gettin changed and heading out early! I'm pretty sure I'll be there too
