Time Out says

Named after African American cyclist Marshall “Major” Taylor, who set world records and broke racial barriers in competition in the late 1800s, this path winds through forest preserves, parks and neighborhoods on Chicago's Far South Side. Beginning in the Dan Ryan Woods at 81st Street, the Major Taylor Trail goes south to 95th Street, at which point it follows on-street bike lanes until resuming an off-street route at 105th Street. Running through West Pullman, Beverly and Morgan Park, the path ends in the Whistler Woods Forest Preserve, just across the Little Calumet River.
