THE LINK: Trail Network launches website

If you live in the Lehigh Valley or have visited here in recent years, you likely know we have one of the most extensive trail networks in the northeast. If not, there’s a new website to help you start exploring. Even if you’re an experienced area rider, there’s still much to be learned here as

Hills, Chills, and Thrills

Although the daylight hours are dwindling and chilly weather is settling in for the season, one particular trail near my home beckons me to ride it. The short spur of the Nor-Bath Rail Trail through Wayne A. Grube Memorial Park is only a mile long but offers five steep hills to climb. This trail has

The Tipping Point

I did a stupid thing Tuesday. I had great intentions of squeezing in a Me-Mover ride at a time of year that starts to limit those chances. I loaded up the truck, rushed to the Ironton Rail Trail’s loop, and got ready to race the setting sun. From the parking lot I chose, I usually

Maiden Voyage

A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step, or this this case enough steps to add up to a 2.7 mile ride on my new Me-Mover. As with any new vehicle or exercise machine, the Me-Mover has a learning curve. The metaphorical first step was taken on my computer watching an official Me-Mover
