    pretty good

    the book is pretty good, except for a few things: a)he seems to get his compass directions mixed up often; b)he goes as far as to explain the great river trail anlong the Missisipi river abd two bike paths in Milwaukee, yet leaves out serveral notable trails, including the Lake county Des Plaines River Trail, Evanston Lakefront & North shore Cannal, most of the I&M Canal Trail. All in all it is a good book from a guy who doesen't understand the difference between north-south and east-west
