Why The DuPage River Trail Is Great

editor’s note:  this article was contributed by Your Naperville community member, Jean Kent.  You can write for us, too. 

Growing up in the city, you grow accustomed to a lot of walking and no car.

Walk to the bus, to the train, taking your kids to school…everything is planned out and within, eh hum…”walking distance.”  Moving out to the ‘burbs several years ago, I found myself needing a car – and fast!  The transit system – aka Pace bus – was not going to get me far, unless I was heading down to the mall, which could be fun!  But that doesn’t get the groceries you need to put on the table.

I’ve had many cars since that time.  And, over the years, I’ve found myself relying too heavily on getting around by vehicle.  It’s an excellent tool, of course, to carpool, shop and even explore outside of the area! But, living from building to car to building, left much to be desired.

We recently picked up a couple of bikes for the family.  I have to say it’s been one of the best decisions we’ve made.
