Ada Township ~ Grand Rapids Bike Trail Connector nears Completion

By
Real Estate Agent with Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner

The 2008 Bike Trail Maps are available online at the Grand Rapids City

Planning Dept. The trail maps show the connecting trail between Crahen and

Forest Hills Avenues still under construction.  This trail will connect Frederick

Meijer Gardens with the 30 miles of Ada-Forest Hills Trails sections in Ada

 Township.  The new section along Forest Hills Avenue north of Ada Drive

 pictured below is nearing completion.

Bike Trails may become more important to us if gas prices continue to rise.

AAA tells us that the average car expense is $ 6893.00 per year while the

average bicycle expense (including purchase) is $ 687.00.  I don't know about

you but cutting my transportation costs by 90% would be a welcome savings.

 

Just not sure how my clients would feel if I arrived for an appointment

riding a bike??

Pretty cool, Terry!  You can ride your bike to the golf course!  Oh.  But the clubs could get a little unwieldy.  Hmmm.

Pat: Fortunately the course I play most of the time is less than a mile away and right off the bike path.

We should get some bikes and ride these trails - there are miles and miles accessible to us - it would be good exercise.

I agree I'll stop by the bike store tonight and pick up a couple. With average for a bike at 600 we can have a nice ride.
