Day 6 – Love those trails in the Triangle

This was our last day — and what a glorious day it was. It was sunny and warm, I had a chance to catch up with a friend over 7 or 8 miles before he had to peel off — and then those trails!

They connected from Durham through Cary to Raleigh with almost no time on roads. They were straight, they curved, they swooped, they climbed … great variety. And they were well used, not only by cyclists.

I immediately fell in love.

Oh, if only more cities thought the same way.

This article, found by a fellow rider, tells you more about just the ever-expanding network of greenways in Raleigh. For a different look at the greenway, check out this artist’s work.

Total mileage on the last day of the Week a Year ride: 48.
