Northeast Texas Trail Calling all Bicyclists on May 18th

“MEET ME IN THE MIDDLE”
A PRESS RELEASE FOR THE NORTHEAST TEXAS TRAIL (NETT)

The organizers of the new Northeast Texas Trail (NETT) have scheduled its inaugural event to introduce the multi-use trail to potential users. On Saturday, May 18, 2013, at 7 am, teams of cyclists and equestrians will begin separate relays from trailheads in New Boston and Farmersville. The meeting point will be Love Civic Center in Paris, (2025 S. Collegiate Dr.) Estimated time of arrival is 12 noon. Golden spikes will be driven into the ground at various points along the route which was originally a railroad corridor.
The NETT runs from Farmersville on the West to New Boston on the East covering 130 miles intersecting with 19 different towns. When completed the NETT will be the 5th longest in the United States.
Traveling West from New Boston, a team will ride through Malta, Dekalb, Avery, Annona, Clarksville, Bagwell, Detroit, Blossom, and Reno, spanning three counties across 68 miles to Paris.
Coming East from Farmersville, the route goes through Merit, Celeste, Wolfe City, Ladonia, Pecan Gap, Ben Franklin, and Roxton, touching 5 different counties for a total of 62 miles, to Paris.
We are inviting any and all cycling clubs and equestrian groups to join us for a “leg” of this relay. We believe this trail will be a huge asset to Northeast Texas and will provide significant economic stimulus to the towns along its corridor.
For more information, find us on Facebook @ NE Texas Trail (or call Bob Mudie, 903-883-0218, Jill Drake, 903-640-6300, or Becky Semple, 903-784-2501.)
SO COME RIDE THE TRAIL WITH US!
