History:

click to enlarge
Had a 10 speed in the 70s but didn't like biking NY state hills. Moved to IL in '89 and bought a used 3 speed Peugeot to get around campus. Next was Specialized Crossroads hybrid which served me well until I got a Giant Avail 3 road bike, a purchase inspired by my step-daughter and her husband's bike trip across South America. In 2012 I got a Bike Friday Tikit which fits in the trunk and offers an amazing commute! Rural IL is THE best place to ride!
