"I will remind our staff of the rule as it applies to bicycles"
Says the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Coordinator.
My recent little bit of bicycle advocacy:
I went for a ride at a nearby state park last weekend. Beautiful area with several paths which I enjoyed. As I was riding on the road within the park, an official in a pickup truck stopped me and said I needed to ride my bicycle on the path which winds through the park. I complied, and jumped on the path at the next opportunity. I ended up having to get back on the road in order to quickly exit the park, and fortunately didn't meet up with this official again.
A few days later, I sent the following email to the state park.
A few days later, I was pleasantly surprised when I received the following email from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Coordinator.
