In Case you Missed It: A Recap of the CDPA Multi-use Trail Connections Tour
It was a mighty fine day for a bike ride this past Saturday and CDPA was fortunate to have a dozen folks meet us at the Island Creek Park in Albany for a tour of proposed, planned, under construction , and completed bike trail facilities along Albany’s Hudson River waterfront. Here are a few images from the event. Thanks to all of our presenters and attendees!
