Count tomorrow as Day 1 in all of our efforts to bring world-class biking and other eco-recreation opportunities to the city's southeast side. Make sure you RSVP, it's quick and painless. More the merrier, but the more we know are coming, the merrier we are.

There's a lot to this bike park we want to open in 2015, and we're going to help you get your head and arms around it tomorrow. We'll tour the site, talk to park designers about the plans, and meet others who are ready for world class cycling and outdoor recreation opportunities to begin improving lives and landscapes in the Calumet region. Bikes welcome!

RSVP to give us a heads up. Have questions? Write to, or call Steve Buchtel, Trails for Illinois, at 708-365-9365.
