Local bicyclist goes on 1,000 minute ride

ROCKFORD (WREX) — An area bicyclist celebrated riding his bike for 1,000 straight days by going on a 1,000 minute ride Tuesday.

DJ Wilson’s 16 hour and 40 minute trip included stops in Loves Park, Capron, Rockford, and Pecatonica.

While Wilson wanted to ride to maintain his health and reduce his carbon footprint, he also did the ride to promote I Bike Rockford and Team Fur Bandit.

“Team Fur Bandit is all about having fun,” said Wilson. “It’s about getting out there and cycling as much as we can.”

The two groups also work with cities to get more bike paths built.
