Steve … Your presentation in Batavia a few days ago was fantastic. There are so many opportunities to build and link trail systems in Illinois … and to take advantage of that network to generate economic development and tourism dollars. Hope you’ll be available to reprise your talk in June at a bike summit our Elgin BPAC hopes to host. Maybe bring your guitar in case the audio/visual takes some time to sync. Keep up the good work!

Great Time

It was our first ride more than a couple miles together as a family. We had a great time!!! Thanks so much for organizing it. We’re sure it was a lot of work. We really appreciate the effort and cant wait until next year.

Downer Grove Bicycle Club

Thanks, Steve, for a wonderful presentation that got a lot of us in Downers Grove excited about the work you’re doing with Trails for Illinois.  I, for one, made my home my trailhead and rode my bike to work today!  Thanks for the motivation and great information with some fun mixed in!

Hot on the Trail

Hey Steve,

Like the site here!  Had an awesome holiday weekend walking and cycling on three different Chicagoland trails (Fox River, Paul Douglas FP and Deer Grove FP. The warm weather seemed to draw people out  :)
