New Trails, yay

Very excited now. I knew that there were plans to bring the Seminole Wekiva trail to Mt Dora, and bring the West Orange trail to meet them somewhere. I hoped that the road construction starting meant these plans were moving forward. I finally dug up the plans to connect these trails, and there will be a connector leg that runs less than 1/4 mile from the front door of my house. I'm sure it won't be a 14' wide section, but I'll gladly take a 4' paved shoulder over the current white line on the grass road width. When it's all done, there will be enough trails that I can ride m bike to work-that would be awesome. Currently, I could make the mileage, but it is a suicide ride on a bike. Yes, it will be years, probably 3 or 4 before it is ready, but I am really stoked about all the places I'll be able to ride just by walking out my front door.

I live in an area that has a great MUP system. One leg starts about 1/4 mile from my house. You will LOVE it. I can ride any direction in my valley without touching the street. However, as we're increasing our mileage, we're learning that our valley isn't as big as we once thought it was.
If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!
