National Trails Day

National Trails Day was Saturday, June 4th.  Community organizations around the country held events celebrating our nation's 200,000 miles of trails.  I volunteered to help with the 14th annual "Trails in Motion" celebration of the Farmington Valley Trails.  The featured event was a 62 mile bike tour of the entire trail system.  Shorter bike, skating, running, and walking were tours were also available.

I was assigned to the Rest Stop Team at the Brickyard Road rest stop.  We provided snacks, water, and tools for minor bike repairs for event participants.  The weather was perfect. Mid-60's and sunny. We had a good turnout, and fun was had by all.

I didn't get a chance to ride yesterday, but today I celebrated the
Farmington Valley Trails by riding the southern half of the trails; 35 miles round trip.  Tomorrow I plan on continuing the celebration by riding the northern section into Massachusetts.
