Poll: New Name For The Bethpage Bikeway?
I'm not sure it's an official name, but the bike path beginning at Bethpage State Park and ending at Merrick Road in Seaford is known to most people as "The Bethpage Bikeway." Now that the extension to Woodbury Road in Woodbury is nearly complete, I notice that we are starting to call this section "The Bethpage Bikeway Extension."
By any name, this paved path is an awesome addition to our local bike network. However, I think it's about time it got a new name that better describes the acreage and scenery it takes in. I'm unable to create a poll that allows participants to write in their own suggestions, so I'm going to ask that you please submit your ideas as a reply to this post.
If we can all agree on something, I will see what needs to be done to take it to the next step. If we can't get the name officially changed, at least we can reserve the new name as our little secret!
