Biking Illinois Update

I added a page for upcoming events and appearances to BikingIllinois.com.

This Thursday I will be in the Quad Cities area for a long day of signing books. I'll start with a breakfast visit to the Grand Illinois Trail And Parks (GITAP) bike tour at Augustana College in Rock Island. At lunchtime I'll be at the Midwest Writing Center in Davenport with Biking Iowa author Bob Morgan. In the afternoon we are going to discuss various bicycling issues on a show for WQPT-TV. Then we will sign books at Borders in Davenport at 7 PM.

The other scheduled events so far are in July. On July 14-15 I will sign at several Borders stores in central Illinois, including Champaign, Normal, and Peoria. Closer to home, on July 20 I will be at The Book Cellar's Local Author Night just a few blocks away.

In other news, last Sunday my book was briefly reviewed in the Chicago Tribune's Travel section. Although the review seems to focus on the first ten pages of the book, I'm happy to get the exposure. With more newspaper coverage to come in the near future, Biking Illinois is gaining momentum as summer finally arrives.
