“The world needs more trails where walkers play the violin and serenade their dogs.”
That’s a friend’s comment about the Beltway trail project in Atlanta, which is off to a great start but has many miles to go.
“Bike paths” tend to turn into linear parks and attract skaters, joggers, power walkers, dog walkers, the odd musher on a wheeled sled and a pack of huskies and a whole variety of people enjoying the outdoors. They have a large diverse constituency even though it’s the bicycling community that tends to be most vocal in pushing them. (You’re welcome!)
