Latest in a series of posts on Walkability and Bikeability
Gadfly finished the 5-month Tail on the Trail challenge yesterday.
His goal was to double the 165-mile basic challenge.
He did most of his short-spurt walking on the D&L Trail between Freemansburg on the east and Kimmett’s Lock on the west.
He looks forward to a pedestrian bridge into the Southside — with a pit stop.
In the Capital Plan we saw in the last post, there is thought to expanding the Greenway a bit farther south.
Gadfly does his longer walking in “training” for the 1/2 Marathon mostly on the Saucon Trail. Last Sunday he walked on it as far toward Bethlehem as he could.
And said a prayer.
Please let him live to see the connection from Burnside close to Gadville, down to Sand Island, across the pedestrian bridge, onto the Greenway, and all the way to Coopersburg.
Bucket list #4.
What a recreational resource we have.
