In our community, what are the transportation options?
In this episode, we visit the Rabbit Transit bus company to see how we can save money and reduce pollution by sharing a public vehicle. The executive direcetor, Richard Farr, tells us that Rabbit offers incentives for cyclists to ride the buses, and they support Bike to York Week which runs from May 14th-19th 2012.
We visit the Whistle Stop Bike Shop in New Freedom, a small-town mom-and-pop (literally) bike shop with decades of experience, community involvement and mechanical know-how.
Just outside the Whistle Stop door lays the Heritage Rail Trail, which runs alongside the historical rails of the Northern Central Railroad, which helped Abraham Lincoln travel to deliver the Gettysburg Address. We chat with Gwen Loose, who heads up the Rail Trail Authority.
Need some tips and pointers for the novice biker/walker/jogger? Joe Stafford from the Bicycle Access Council educates us with bike etiquette. Sean Hermanns from the Susan P. Byrnes Health Education Center provides tips for stretching.
And our own Andrew Fake provides information for getting started.
