|Looking forward to doing some major off-road riding Sat and Sunday with my new fork. Can't wait to try it out. I've gone without any suspension for too long!
Why? Is there a century ride in Chicago this weekend?

Palos Saturday and Sunday (Early Morning) -- email me your number so I can get in touch with you for times and all that (no email access at home -- kinda get sick of computers after 8 hours of working with them on them ya know). A group of us are getting together so it should be fun. They are all really good riders and I often wonder why they put up with my newbie antiques!
The fork is an older Manitou but then again my bike is an older Trek. I'm just excited because I've been working on jumping and getting my front tire over some of those larger logs...this front suspension fork will most likely help.

|That's an interesting question. Is there some sort of organized event I hadn't heard aboot? Are you flying in from Canada, eh? I finished the Dick & Jane book yesterday. I think I'll ride this weekend and let my brain rest.|

|I read about in the NY Times on Tuesday. Someone in Chicago has organized a mass reading of To Kill a Mockingbird. They want as many Chicagoans to read the book at the same time to get the cerebral juices flowing. This idea (but a different book) was tried in Seattle recently. |
No, sorry, won't be flying into Chicago. I was there last Labour Day weekend, though. What a great city! In fact, one year ago tonight, I was sitting in Grant Park listening to Herbie Hancock perform one of my favourite songs - Maiden Voyage. It was a fantastic weekend.
(Gosh, this new font is hard to read. And every time I try to post a comment, I get shunted to a "Missing Data" screen. Well here goes. Have a great weekend.)
