    Looks like fun! Nice to see some familiar faces… even a furry one!

    We want to thank the Philipstown Trails Committee for putting on such an enjoyable bike ride.

    Though we’re both big cyclists, we have not done much biking since we moved to Cold Spring in February. We have a beautiful town with exceptional scenery but the unfortunate lack of bike lines and high speed limits along Route 9D make for a harrowing experience.

    Sunday’s ride was a delightful preview of what life could be like with better protection for cyclists. Our quality of life would greatly increase with the installation of key bike lanes. How wonderful would it be to be able to safely bike to the farmers’ market? Or to our libraries and our schools? We applaud the efforts by the Philipstown Trails Committee to create a safer experience for cyclists and pedestrians, and hope to see more community rides in the future.
