Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
I live in the windy city, and riding here is great. The city is set up well, it has great architecture and a huge bike community. Chicago has great history and plenty of things to see, one of my favorite places is The Green Mill where Capone could be seen at in his time. There are cool bridges and underground streets downtown, and the city is on the lake so there is a trail right there too. I can stay out all day and cycle through these streets, and I’ll do it again the next day...
What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
LA was nice, but I was on a cruiser I got on Venice Beach...It would have to be the home town, I plan to travel more but I will always love Chicago the most. North Side forever...but I really would like to go to Tokyo!
Why do you love riding in the city?
I used to love cars, until I found out how useless they are in the city. I love to just fly by and ride around traffic, instead of sitting in it. It is way faster to ride and it keeps me in better shape. And you don’t have to look for parking...and gas prices suck! I can get a little workout while lookin’ at girls, graffiti, funny people, stupid people, crazy things, bums, pigs...there is never a dull moment.
Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city…
ARRRRGGG to the Pirates crew! You don’t know your city until you ride it, it’s much more beautiful outside the metal box. And tight pants suck...
