It's always a great investment in a community...hoping more and more will realize this and the trend will catch on!

As someone that lives outside Indy but still in Marion county I like the biking and jogging options. I am too far out to reach the Monon directly but I have the Fall Creek path that eventually meets with the monon. This means I can have very long rides (or jogs during marathon training) with very few transitions to other pathways.

Nice.

Always a joy to see such developments catching on!

Love this quote and agree wholeheartedly:

“Anytime you create cycling infrastructure, it feeds upon itself,” said local advocate Tom McCain. “Trails lead to more cyclists which leads to the need for more bike lanes which again leads to more cyclists...the Monon has become more than just a piece of transportation infrastructure, it’s become a way of life for a lot of residents. It was an important first step that laid the groundwork for expansion.”

The whole community reaps benefits that just keep piling up! :-)
