Le Tour Goes to Oakwood, IL

A medical appointment for CEO left some time for another venture to Kickapoo and the Rail Trail

Positioning the start to avoid any steep climbs proved a good idea, albeit, shortening the distance

A parking area exists between ravines and is not far from the entrance to the Vermilion County Fairgrounds and access to the Rail Trail

(There are even some flags and one banner)

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Looks like you had a good ride. Any idea when the entire trail will be finished all the way through? Or, for that information, do I need to go to Helen Waite?

      I think we all may have to.
      The last ‘Update’ I can find is from June ’21 — 4 miles to go in Champaign County, 9 in Vermilion.
      Not sure if any work is being done right now, I’m certain Covid was a factor at that time.
      Frankly surprised they have as much done as they do.
      Work began in 2016, so I’m guessing another couple years IF funding is provided.
