Nicole Wagoner says paths have huge economic impact

By Greg Larry, Cumberland Times-News

CUMBERLAND — City council member Nicole Wagoner will participate in a 335-mile bicycle journey from Washington to Pittsburgh to promote area trails and physical fitness.

In addition to her council post, Wagoner is the director of sales for Fairfield Inn and Suites and president of Mountain Maryland Trails, a nonprofit organization that helps raise awareness about the trails and works with the county to provide maintenance and improve amenities.

Wagoner, 35, from Fort Ashby, W.Va., wants to take part in the journey for three reasons.

She wants to promote the trail and raise awareness about the economic impact it has on the area. Another reason is to show that anyone, at any fitness level, can enjoy the trail. The third reason is to raise money for Mountain Maryland Trails.

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. ( ) 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.
