Earth Day and the Montpelier Bike Path

April 24th, 2013

Photo from the Hunger Mountain Coop’s Annual Earth Day Celebration and a couple shots illustrating the bike path that runs through Montpelier Vermont. A regional bike path had been proposed following the railroad bed through Montpelier, Berlin, Barre, and Barre Town. With several sections already completed but Berlin dropping out, the project’s fate is in question.

Annaliese, a preschooler, and Eliana, in 3rd grade, are on break from Calais Elementary this week. “This seems like the kind of thing we need more of around here.” said Chauntelle in reference to the bike path, “we don’t have any side walks where we live in Calais so they (Eliana and Annaliese) have been riding their scooters around on our wood floors all winter”.
