Run, bike or hike: unprecedented trail development in New York means soon you’ll be able to get to destinations throughout New York on two feet or on two wheels. The Capital Region’s rapidly growing network of multi-use hiking and biking trails are attracting tourism and economic development, while more sidewalks and bike lanes are increasing the walkability and interconnectedness of our cities and towns.
You’re invited to join us on Thursday, May 10 for the Run, Bike, Hike: Capital Region Trails Summit, at the NYS Capitol–Assembly Parlor, Room 306, 8:00 to 10:30 AM. Program begins promptly at 8:30 AM, coffee and check-in at 8:00 AM.
Join Assemblymembers Patricia Fahy and John McDonald and Senator Neil Breslin, and panelists ranging from Parks and Trails New York to the Center for Economic Growth. Highlights include walking and biking trail expansion and development across the region, including the Empire State Trail, Albany County Rail Trail and numerous on and off-road bike and pedestrian paths in between! Trails are more than recreation: panelists will discuss the serious business and economic impact; tourism; health benefits; financial and regulatory barriers; and promote the innovative efforts underway.
