We live just a few minutes away from the best mountain biking in the midwest! Today, Peter and I rode in the Palos Forest Preserve. The trails were pretty tough. I fell three times, and I bled. This means I became a real mountain biker! But seriously... We had a great time. I learned a ton, and found out that I'm not a great biker. yet. I am battered and bruised, and I want to go out there again next week.
