The idea for a rowing club in Hinsdale was first thought of by Dr. Steven Louis, a father to children that rowed at east coast prep schools. He and his wife, Amy have rowed for years on the Des Plaines River and they thought it would be conducive for a high school team.

Here Dr. Louis is rowing at a club outing and encouraging local young people and their families to come out and enjoy the river activities and great surrounding wildlife.

My wife and I at the start of the American Birkebeiner. This was my 18th year participating in the race. Over 10,000 racers gear up in all events during the weekend and about 3,750 ski racers for the 51K skate event I participated in.  This year I finished in 4:53 minutes. Not my best but I was happy with it. It was a nice warm day, 10 degrees at the start and warmed up to 15. The day before and after would have been a start of 10 below 0…… that would have been cold!

To enthusiastic off-road bicyclists from across the country, the annual trek to the Chequamegon
(She-wa-me-gon) Fat Tire Festival presented by Trek means fat tire racing and fat tire fun. Each year in mid-September, thousands of fat tired fliers descend on the towns of Cable and Hayward in northwestern Wisconsin to take on the off road bicycle tests of endurance and agility offered throughout the weekend.

From the  27 cyclists who lined up to ride the unknown trails of the Chequamegon at the first Festival in 1983 to the sold-out, limited field that is currently chosen by random lottery, the Festival is one of the nation’s greatest grassroots events.

During this year’s event, Dr. Louis rode 40 miles of beautiful, yet challenging point-to-point rolling glacial terrain, one of the area’s steep forest courses. Combined with the congenial welcome of the Hayward and Cable communities who provide a tireless volunteer army, the support of Presenting Sponsor – Trek and a cast of other generous sponsors, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival has earned its iconic rank in the sport today.

Dr. Louis is an avid cyclist who enjoys many endurance and
agility bicycle racing events throughout the year.
