“While cycling the TransAmerica Trail, it has been very apparent how well established the route is among the trail’s communities. Folks in the gardens wave, friendly drivers toot, and many people approach you to chat and encourage you. Forty-two years of riders have paved the way for me in terms of attitude toward and infrastructure for cyclists.”
