I am looking for a riding partner or two in or near the west suburbs of Chicago. I live in Wood Dale and have a hybrid bike. I do all day or half day rides once every week or two in the summer time, often on week days as my work schedule is somewhat irregular. My usual riding partner has been unable to ride much this summer due to family issues and I am looking to meet some other members that I can meet out on the trails and ride with. I typically ride anywhere from 30-85 miles and regularly ride the Salt Creek Trail, Great Western Trail, Prairie Path and other local trails. I don't like riding in big groups and have therefor shied away from the local cycling clubs. I don't ride super fast as I have a hybrid bike with 38c tires and I almost always have my panniers loaded with enough gear so that I am used to it for my next tour, whenever that may be. I have really only done one (relatively) long distance touring ride a number of years ago covering 623 miles in 10 days but I like to think that I may take another one soon. I am 42 years old and in pretty good shape but I ride for fun and am not a speed demon. Reply or email me if you think we might be compatible riding partners.
