7-19-13 fdl bicycle enthusiasts push for bike trail loop around the city

A group of Fond du Lac bicycle enthusiast are leading the effort to create a bike trail that makes a complete loop around the city of Fond du Lac.  Public Works Director Jordan Skiff says his neighbor John McDowell helped facilitate a meeting this week to discuss the matter.  "The general areas that we are talking about are the Prairie Trail from the south part of the city to the Peebles Trail, and then to bring the Peebles Trail toward Lakeside Park, through the park over to the Brooke Street Trail and then to take that south to the Pioneer Trail that's being constructed and then to take the Pioneer Trail to the east to eventually connect up again with the Prairie Trail,"  Skiff said.  Skiff says the good news much of the loop is already complete.  Skiff says the city has been working over the past several months on drafting a  bike-pedestrian  plan.
