Or at least my book, which is good enough. Todd Underwood, bicycling columnist for the Daily Herald, gave Biking Illinois a great review this week. I like that he noticed all the research that went into the rides, including history and background. He even listed my Web site. This was a much-needed ego boost after my long, lonely Saturday in central Illinois.
I forgot to mention here that a few weeks ago my hometown newspaper, the Oswego Ledger-Sentinel, did a nice half-page story about me and my book. Unfortunately, they didn't put it online so I can't link to it. Reporter John Borneman asked me to provide a photo, but when I dragged my heels, he used this picture from my Grand Illinois Trail homepage instead. Since I was six years younger and 40 pounds lighter then, I think he made a great choice!
