Grand Illinois Trail Tour
The Grand Illinois Trail and Parks (GITAP) bike tour is currently taking registrations. Fewer than 30 spots remained as of Jan. 24, 2010! The GIT is a 475-mile trail through northern Illinois that links Chicago and Lake Michigan with the Mississippi River. The ride will be June 13-18, 2010, and will follow the GIT’s northern leg, promising great cycling, scenery, state parks, and the opportunity to make new cycling friends.
The Grand Illinois Trail is a central element of the Regional Greenways and Trails Plan.
