City Bike Trail Links Cross State Off-Road Path [WOSU]

 (WOSU) - During summer months more Central Ohioans head for bike trails in the region. The network of paved and gravel paths winds through parks and alongside creeks and rivers. The newest section of the bike trail system .a two-and half mile stretch along Alum Creek on the city's northeast side ..offers bicyclists an entry point to a much longer off-road path. WOSU's Tom Borgerding reports. 

Beneath a grove of mature trees at Innis Park, Columbus mayor Michael Coleman arrived to dedicate a recycled bridge and a two-and-a-half mile section of the Alum Creek Bike trail.

The newest section of trail becomes part of what is now a 165 mile-long system that offers bicyclists and pedestrians an off-road means of getting around town. Mayor Coleman, who described himself as "bikin' Mike," for the 60 people in attendance, describes Columbus as a boom town for bicycling.
