Check out all the Lovely People We've Met Along the Way

I met Christine through my effort to reach out to the folks who are working on designed a signed
bike route encircling Lake Michigan. She and Ken met us at the Indiana Dunes State Park
to get some photos and create a press release they'll use to help promote bicycle tourism in Indiana

One of our great joys of the trip is meeting interesting, generous and helpful folks everywhere we go. We've established a routine, someone asks where we're from, comments about our Evanston Bike Club jerseys or our bikes we give them a trip card and explain what we're up to. A short questions usually becomes a longer conversation full of lots of fun stories of biking, traveling, lakes, food, weather or any number of topics. We try to get their picture and their names to share. Check out the page in the right column "Lovely Folks We've Met" to see these and sometimes a short statement of their story.
