Trail Ramblings: Coming Up Soon.

Congratulations to everyone who participated in Bike To Work Week! Bike commuting is it’s own reward, but it’s always nice to be recognized for it. Keep up the good work. Also to those who got to bike in the Run-Bike-Run for the Prairie Corridor, it was a great event.
