Today’s Knoxville News Sentinel has an article about linking Tennessee bike trails with those in Georgia.
This is an excellent idea. Communities in both states have found that bike trails serve a wide range of ages, provide commuting routes as well as recreational opportunities, and linking these pathways for two-wheelers will be good for tourism. Bike tourists tend to be good visitors: upscale folks who like to end the day with a good meal and who are interested in local culture. As baby boomers age, biking provides a knee-friendly way to get out and have a wonderful trip.
