Madison County Bike Trails

Sunday's Post-Dispatch has an article about the network of bike trails across the river in Illinois. Of particular interest is the attitude of homeowners whose property lies near the various trails:
"Initially, there were complaints from people who feared their privacy would be invaded," Kane said. Today, the complaints are from people who want to know when they'll get their spur (link) to the trails."

Contrast the Madison County situation with recent events in Maryland Heights. The free bike magazine "Point to Point", which is available apparently, in most local bike shops, has an informative analysis of the Maryland Heights story as well.

from the article:

Riders with stamina can already use Madison County's trails to pedal from Venice all the way to Alton, about a 15-mile trek.
