Trail Advocates of Central Illinois

Mission
Advocacy for and maintenance of trails and non-motorized transportation and recreation facilities and accommodations within Central Illinois.

Vision
Central Illinois will be connected to the world through non-motorized transportation alternatives.

About
Originally formed as Friends of the Rock Island Trail, TACI has been working to develop, maintain and advocate for multi-use trail systems in and around Peoria since 1975. Whether through volunteerism (helping to keep existing trails clean and functional) or lobbying efforts for retaining or adding new trails, TACI improves the quality of life in central Illinois by helping make high-quality recreational trails available to all.

Recognizing many shared and overlapping aspects of mission, vision and organizational values, TACI joined forces with Bike Peoria in 2019.
