New Bike Route In Rockford

A new bike route in Rockford is unveiled today. Mayor Morrissey joined local leaders to celebrate the first phase of the plan. The route will run from Rockford college on the east, to Riverside and Halsted boulevard on the west. Leaders say the new path provides an alternative and healthier form of transportation versus cars.

"I think Rockford has a great trail system already by adding a network of routes to get to the trail system, or even through town, helps to make it so you can use your bike for transportation," said Ed Barsotti, League of Illinois bicyclist.
