Greenways and Rails-to-Trails with Bike Effingham

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
— Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., 26th President of the United States of America and avid conservationist

…and we have more than enough abandoned railroads here in America. This episode is a view into the 50-year-long movement of converting abandoned railroads to public trails through “Rails-to-Trails” projects, the economic and health benefits of these Rail-Trails + an interview with Ashley Parker, the founder of Bike Effingham, a non-profit on a mission to create a better cycling community in Effingham County, Georgia through advocacy, education, volunteering, and most important, fun!
