I am writing to give my support for the bike trail from Perham to Pelican Rapids. My husband and I live on Devils Lake and enjoy riding bike when ever we can. The current environment of the roads surrounding our house does not provide a safe area for people who ride to be able to get on our bikes and ride. This trail would not only provide recreational travel but for some another means of safe transportation. Simply by bringing our state tax dollars back to the area instead of being used elsewhere. The trail would also bring tourism dollars into the area and most likely keep many dollars here from those of us who travel to other communities to enjoy a scenic bike ride.
I hope the positive representation of the community will show their support for this trail and show our commissioners and all those who’ve worked so hard to continue to better our community how much we appreciate their hard work.
