Illinois Office of Tourism's star of screens large and small, Mini Abe, joined us in a photo shoot that Adventure Cycling will use to promote US Bicycle Routes 36 & 37, connecting Hammond, Indiana to Kenosha, Wisconsin.
We got the towns and agencies—including the Forest Preserves District of Cook County, Lake County, the City of Chicago, and the Chicago Park District—from Hammond, Indiana to the Wisconsin state line together with IDOT (fresh from finalizing the Illinois State Bike Plan) to establish US Bicycle Route 36 & 37. You can see the working map here.
(Hey, this stuff takes real work. Help us do more of it by supporting us today!)
Official designation is pending May 28. Adventure Cycling asked us to get a photo along one of the routes for their media release.
So we brought Mini Abe and Colin Thomas from Thomas Photographic Services, and we took a bunch! Which one would you like splashed over national media to promote Illinois’ newest trail-based tourism asset? Tell us in the comments.
And THANK YOU to Illinois Tourism for fitting us into Mini Abe’s schedule!
