Constructed in 1995 with assistance from a grant from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the Harold E. Ruppel Bike Path commemorates one of the Village’s first park advocates. Mr. Ruppel worked tirelessly to improve the quality of the parks and open spaces in the Village, often donating his time and resources to the effort. The path is about 1.8 miles long in Savoy and connects to trail systems in Champaign bringing a variety of users from both Champaign and Savoy together in outdoor leisure and exercise. The path terminates to the south at the Savoy Recreation Center. The Ruppel Bike Path forms a significant leg of what is hoped will become a network of trails and pathways throughout the community, linking up to regional path systems that will ultimately interweave and circumvent the entire Champaign-Urbana-Savoy metropolitan area.
