I try to do as many of those activities that keep me moving when I am at home when I visit elsewhere on vacation. Sometimes it is difficult if there is no access to certain facilities or equipment. This past visit to my home town of Peoria Illinois, I was able to rent a very nice Trek hybrid bike from Bushwhacker. I rode the bike in the city (through public parks and in a hilly cemetery) and out in the country on paved roads and trails.
I realized when I was biking on the Rock Island Trail that the trail goes beyond Dunlap, so on my next trip I will again rent a bike so I can make the complete trip out and back on the gravel portion of the trail. Thanks to the folks at http://www.bushwhacker.com for setting me up with a great bike and helmet!
