It was a cloudy, cool day, but the showers stayed away until the 100 riders, walkers and Segway users had a good time enjoying the 0n-road portion of the proposed trail. It was thrilling to see people on bikes riding through the center of town and to the end points at Norton Park or Cronk Rd.. Some were seen to relax afterwards on the new benches in the center (and perhaps dream of the day when there will be bike racks there). Two of our police officers were patrolling the route on bikes for the duration of the ride and did a great job of setting out traffic cones at key intersections to make the route safer for cyclists and motorists. We got some great feedback on the ballots about what folks liked or did not like about the route, and we will make that information available to the designers during the next phase of the planning.
We had lots of volunteers and several donors to make this success possible. Our donors were AMP Radio, Walgreens, Tim Horton's and TD Bank. Our volunteers were too numerous to mention, but included a great bunch of students from the High School DECA program. Thanks to all of you!
