Wednesday was such a beautiful day to go for a ride out in the country. It's hard to convey how good it felt to get out of the house and just RIDE! Legs felt good, fresh air in my lungs, everything was perfect...until....
...I decided to hit the Hart-Montague Bike Trail. For one, as you can tell, there is still snow on parts of it where you have to get off and walk your bike (if you have narrow tires) and second it is still in terrible shape. I've been hearing for a while now that it is scheduled to be widened and re-paved since it is the first paved rail trail in the state. Does anybody know when this is supposed to happen? What's the hold up? Money? Whatever the reason if you are a serious rider going at a decent speed it will shake the bejeezus out of you and your bike. Stick to the road instead. I certainly hope they fix it soon since it is such a beautiful ride and the tourism dollars it brings to the small towns along the way will be missed.
Thank you so much for stopping by my page for a visit! For those of you new to WMUS, I'll give you a little bit of insight into who Mark Dixon is. For those of you who have been around for some time, you pretty much know everything about me. My life is pretty much an open book.
I've come by my career in broadcasting honestly, having grown up in Kalamazoo as a son of a radio disc jockey. My father was a DJ at WKZO and was the long time "voice" of TV Channel 3 (WKZO, currently WWMT). Years later, my career in radio began in 1978 in the small town of Ottawa, Ohio. From there I had a short stint in Lima, Ohio. Since 1988 my family has called WMUS and West Michigan home.
My interests are bicycling, deer and turkey hunting, bowling, golf, and computers (I've become quite a geek late in life.). I also enjoyed coaching my son in soccer when he went to Fruitport
You probably know that I'm not shy about bragging and talking about my grandkids, Katelyn and Brendan on the air either!
