A bicycle, in our increasingly complex world, remains a relatively simple machine. Few simple machines, however, offer us such freedom when we climb aboard.

Traveling the Outerbelt – a 210-mile journey by foot around the Chicago area

Flossmoor resident Jay Readey recently hiked the perimeter of the Chicago area on the Outerbelt, which mostly follows forest preserve trails around the region. Readey, a community development attorney, is a founder of the Outerbelt Alliance. He spoke with the H-F Chronicle about his two-week trip.
