Congratulations to Jason Schneider of Sterling, IL for completing the entire Bike Route of the Rock River Trail! He traveled from September 19 – 22, 2022.
Jason says of his adventure: ” What an awesome adventure and I am thankful for the opportunity to get to do this. There is so much to see by bicycle that you would miss just driving by. So much beautiful country out there. It definitely brings new appreciation for what the Rock River offers. I was fortunate to get to meet a few people along the way and share my experience too. It was so cool to see how each community utilizes their riverfront areas.”
