The Chainlink

   I just did most of the ride across Illinois and back on the canal trails.  Here's a link to my summary of it for those interested.  The trail between Morris and Ottawa right now is more work than pleasure since the flooding.  I rode it one way and avoided that section on the way back.

Thanks! I'm planning on riding out from the near west suburbs of Chicago to just past Morris on Friday.

Thank you for the report... I was thinking of riding out to Starved Rock along the I&M...

I appreciated reading your summary; sounds like a fun trip. And I appreciated the update as I am riding from Chicago to Starved Rock this Saturday. I called the I&M Trail conditions number (815-942-0796) and got a very helpful update from the representative on how to ride around the four washouts between Morris and North Utica.

I just got back from my S28O camping trip to Morris, and can report that the I & M is clear and smooth sailing from Rockdale to Morris.

I did, however, notice that the bikeway of the 171/83 bridge connecting the north section o the I & M trail to the Centennial Trail will apparently be closed during August and September. :/
