Wheels in motion

We have two functional bicycles again! It only took two years plus after moving to a house six blocks from a lovely scenic river with trails... *blush* As it turned out, although all four tires were flat, only one had an actual hole and needed the tube replaced. So it didn't take too long once I got started this afternoon.

Need to rewrap the handlebars, as the existing tape is cracked and flaking off. And at least one needs a headlamp, as I intend to start riding it to voice lessons and summer opera rehearsals. And we need to register them with the city.

But still, bikes! That we can actually ride! *bounce*

Go you! I've been totally into the bicycling this year. Are you near the Fox River? We're hoping to take the Prairie Path to Geneva later in the summer.

Yep, that's our river. We're in Elgin. I haven't really investigated what all the trails are yet. But from driving down the river with my folks last summer, it seems like you can go continuously for good chunks of it. There's some particularly nice sections in St. Charles.

It's a municipal thing. Totally different depending on where you are; I don't think I've ever lived anywhere that had it. The purpose is to help with recovery if they get stolen; I don't think they give you a ticket if you don't or anything. And in our town it's free.
