Good Hope looks to become cycling mecca

Mayor wants more bike events

Posted: Sunday, March 20, 2011 12:00 am

GOOD HOPE — For those who live in Good Hope, driving daily among the scenic woods and past historic sites, the area can seem rather mundane.

Yet, Mayor Randy Garrett said, the city has become an unlikely attraction to cyclists, who flood the area on the weekends for a chance to ride through the town.

    For those who want to ride in the county I want to let you know that we do have a group, Walton on Wheels that rides every Monday evening and pick-up rides on the weekends.

    We have many different routes throughout the county from short rides to longer rides. We promote bicycle safety and best practices for bicyclists and motorists alike.

    Walton on Wheels can be found in yahoo groups and also on Facebook.

    Glad to hear the discussion. One easy start would be making a route map of some short and longer distance rides. I recently went riding in the area and it was really heavenly. Not too many cars and relatively flat roads. I hope Good Hope will promote safe biking - so that cars and riders know the rules to safely share the road.

    That's great for the store but it is a royal pain for anyone trying to drive a vehicle. It's hard to pass one car on those roads much less huge packs of bikes.
