At a ribbon cutting ceremony on November 20, Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith, 4th District Councilman Ken Oliver, Delegate Dan Morhaim, Recreation and Parks Director Bob Barrett and community officials celebrated the official opening of the new recreational trail in the Owings Mills New Town area. The County converted what had been an abandoned section of Dolfield Road into the Red Run Stream Valley Trail, now a level, 20-foot wide wooded trail suitable for a variety of recreational uses like walking, biking and in-line-skating. Trail amenities include a new bridge to replace the previous one, which had become unusable.
Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( http://www.cdc.gov/nccdphp/bb_nutrition/ ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
