LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) — Organizers are working on a bicycle route to connect two recreation trails in northern Indiana.
The proposed route would use existing roads and trails to connect the 22-mile (35.5-kilometer) Panhandle Pathway running between Winamac and near France Park in Cass County and the 37-mile (59.5-kilometer) Nickel Plate Trail linking Rochester and Kokomo.
The (Logansport) Pharos-Tribune reports Logansport officials have approved placing signs in city park properties for the connecting route that extends to Peru.
Logansport Deputy Mayor Mercedes Brugh says signs at both existing trails will emphasize the 28-mile (45-kilometer) connector is meant for more experienced bicyclists since it will often use city streets and county roads.
Organizers believe the connecting route will help draw more long-distance cyclists to the trails.
