A local government leader recently traded in his car keys for two wheels.
DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin recently biked to the county office during “Bike to Work Week.”
He rode more than 11 miles from Elmhurst to Wheaton on the Illinois Prairie Path.
Along the way he met up with county employees, members of the Illinois Prairie Path Corporation, and other biking enthusiasts.
“All sorts of bike paths and trails, if you just take a little time to investigate the trail system here you will find it’s a wonderful way to get to work particularly on a beautiful summer day,” said Cronin.
Cronin is a regular biker, and said he planned to bike home during his lunch break before picking up his car for afternoon meetings.
