Ride to Remember Major Taylor
Lincoln Mall, Matteson, Ill.
    Folks on Spokes, a bicycle club in Illinois, hosts this annual ride to remember Major Taylor, who is buried in Mount Glenwood Cemetery in nearby Glenwood, Ill. This year’s event started at the Lincoln Mall with a brief service to honor Major Taylor. There was a 25-mile family bike ride on the Old Plank Road Trail, and a metric century option (62.5 miles) that used the trail and then roads to Peotone and back. A Bicycle Safety Rodeo was held outside Lincoln Mall on June 22. For details visit or contact Denise Graham Zahn at or 708-748-4661.
