October 31, 2009 M&L Tour in Derry and Windham
Meeting location: Hood Park, Rollins Street, Derry NH
Coordinated by: Derry Rail Trail Alliance
Mark Connors, Derry RTA
Mark Samsel, Windham RTA
Dave Topham, BWA-NH
Carol Robidoux, Manchester Union Leader
James Robidoux, Bicycle Commuter
On a dry but windy Saturday afternoon BWA's Dave Topham helped with a guided tour of the Derry and Windham rail trails for the benefit of a New Hampshire Union Leader reporter, Carol Robidoux and her husband Jim who is a commuter cyclist. Mark Connors, DRTA VP, and Mark Samsel, WRTA President, did most of the talking while Dave offered more details relating to the whole M&L corridor and the statewide rail trail efforts in general. Carol interviewed and took photos of people using the Derry and Windham trails. The comments were all overwhelmingly positive with the main question asked being "when does the trail go further?"
Carol's article appeared in the November 2 edition of the Union Leader and is available here along with some photos taken on the tour.
