Over the next week I am going to attempt to ride trail at:

Silver Lake trails Illinois,
SIU-Edwardsville Trail System located on old river-fest grounds

I don't have much time so I am looking at a couple of hours at each at best. Sadly the Berryman designated IMBA epic trail if I go will likely be a 5 or 6 mile out and back.

I graduated SIU-E for undergrad studies but never on that trail, also never on Berryman. So it will be new dirt for me
