The DASANI "Blue Bikes" community bicycle program, supported by Trek® , officially kicked off in Villa Park, Ill., during DuPage County Bike Day on June 25, 2005. The initiative gave Chicago-area residents the free use of 20 brand-new Trek Cruiser Classic bicycles to explore the 61-mile Illinois Prairie Path and Great Western Trail, which winds through the western suburbs of Chicago.
