A ride on Springfield's trail system

Ralph Rognstad of Springfield, who leads a regular Saturday morning ride in the area, writes in his blog about taking a ride on one of Springfield's many trails:
It was cold again today (34 degrees), but I headed out this afternoon because the sun was shining. I rode Jefferson to Madison to Holland; swung east to Phelps Grove Park; back to Holland southbound to the South Creek Greenway; out to the end of the greenway and back, about 19 miles. Not much distance, but it was on the road and not the trainer. I stopped at the Fred May Plaza just west of where Holland intersects the greenway. Fred was the former Springfield planning director and helped establish the greenways.
