I live in the Chicago area and in order to get trails built you have to put up with massive bureaucracy and probably grease a few politicians in order to accomplish what happened hear. Happy for them, really frustrating here in Illinois.
It is really exciting to know about this kinda news. I went there almost three years back to visit one of my friends and riding around the Riverbend Park. It will be really great when it will be completed. It will be a must riding place for me when I visit there again.
We have trails nearby in Seminole county Florida, and I just found out last week that we can’t build jumps in the county. Before I even think about advocating for new trails I’ll have to solve that little issue.
