Our old friend, and former GORC member, Brett Billings is putting together this bash at beautiful Lake Glendale near Vienna, IL on Oct. 26-28, 2007. If you’ve never been down to Southern Illinois, you’ll probably be in for a big surprise with the rocky nature of the trails down there. All of the details, including registration info are listed at the Bike Surgeon’s website.

Brett promises that this is going to be a much bigger event than the one some of us attended 3 years ago. It looks like there will be more attention to some riding on the eastern side of the Shawnee, so hopefully it won’t be a whole day spent searching for the elusive “John Deere Trail”. It will also give SMBA a chance to show off all of the hard work they’ve done improving the trails on the west side.
