The Galloping Goose Trail is a mixed-use path that is paved in areas around the city. It is used by walkers, cyclists, old people with scooters and parents with baby strollers.

I bought my electric bike about a month ago. I've been going to many more of the sights around the city than ever before.

The trails are much safer than the roads that are shared with cars.

I took a few pictures along the trail and in places that I used the trails to access.

This is the story of my electric bike. It's a Pedigo Trail Tracker.

Further out of town,  the Galloping Goose Trail becomes the Lockside trail.  It roughly follows the path of Lockside drive.

There are several trestles,  there are paved portions, gravel portions and portions that are on public roads.
