Hagerstown officials on board in support of Civil War Railroad Trail

By C.J. LOVELACE, Herald-mail

Hagerstown officials earlier this month joined the Washington County Board of Commissioners in support of a new biking and hiking trail that would connect Hagerstown’s City Park to the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal near the Potomac River.

The pledge came after the five-member Hagerstown City Council heard a proposal March 6 to create a Civil War Railroad Trail, running 23.4 miles south to Weverton, Md.

Dick Cushwa of the city’s Bicycle Advisory Committee outlined the project, which would follow the former Baltimore & Ohio Railroad line and ultimately connect to the 184.5-mile C&O Canal.

The proposed trail project would promote tourism, economic development and healthy lifestyle opportunities for city and county residents, Cushwa said.

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.
