Bike Instead Week Celebrated by Defenders

Gary Kanner, Co-Chair of The Environmental Defenders of McHenry County’s Transportation Committee, rides to Woodstock with wife and Executive Director of The Defenders during the organization’s inaugural “Bike Instead Week.” Cynthia Kanner rode from Algonquin to Woodstock for a 37-mile round trip commute instead of taking a car on Friday, May 18. Gary is shown here at Ridgefield Trace off of Walkup Road in Crystal Lake. Prizes donated by Bike Haven in Woodstock and Crystal Lake Ski & Bike will be awarded to individuals in three categories: longest distance, greatest number of trips, and most challenging independent of distance.
