Greg Borzo, Member at Large
I'm a lifelong cyclist for, oh, so many reasons, especially to stay healthy; to protect the environment; and to save money. I believe the bike is the "noblest invention," as others have said. Also, it's the most common form of transportation, worldwide, so I feel a sense of community with others around the world when I bike. Cycling is the most sustainable form of transportation -- and it certainly has done a lot to sustain me over the years!
I love to watch movies about biking. See my reviews under "Bike Movies" at gregborzo.com. Please email me with any ideas for additional bike movies to review.
One of my best vacations was a bike trip through the Loire River Valley in France. I would highly recommend that to anyone who likes to eat and drink...while drinking in history and beauty.
Currently, I'm a self-employed writer with thousands of articles and four books to my name, including The Chicago "L," Where to Bike Chicago: Best Biking in City and Suburbs; and RAGBRAI: America's Favorite Bicycle Ride.
I used to own 4 bikes but had to cut down to two (a road bike and a hybrid) when we moved to the South Loop. I'm active in the Chicago Tour-guide Professional Assn. and a volunteer at the Chicago History Museum, where I lead many tours, including the Devil in the White City tour -- by bike!
