The word that gets thrown around as often as a bicycle tire rotates is 'connectivity.' So if the goal of cities and cyclists alike is to make it easier for pedestrians to walk, jog or bike from place to place - that's to say connecting - then the newest piece of proposed trail should fit right into the ever expanding puzzle. Think Coeur d'Alene to Athol, and one day, to Sandpoint. And all by foot. The Idaho Transportation Department is considering building roughly 19 miles of Class 1 bicycle lanes along U.S. Highway 95 that would allow pedestrians to walk or bike from Appleway Avenue in Coeur d'Alene to Athol. After that, it could keep building the trail to Sandpoint. The offer comes with a condition: Once the state builds it, it's up to local entities to take care of it/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Anyone out there oppose a common-sense proposal like this one?
