Are you an up-state Illinois cyclist seeking more places to ride- AWAY From Vehicles? Cyclists of the late 1800’s pushed for better roads, well before cars were around. Now -cyclists are treated like some sort of sub-culture forced to share the roads in narrow vehicle lanes when we’re the ones trying to better ourselves and the planet.
Don’t settle for the status quo. I created this site because I love to ride, yet hate the perpetual feeling that everyone on the road is out to kill me. The land is out there and there are legislators sympathetic to large a user group like the cycling crowd.
So ask yourself – Would you like-
- Improved network of paths to connect towns and cities
- More off road trails/ pathways
- Winter options / fat bike / plowed pathways / groomed trails
- Official bike lanes
