Report: Blueprint Montana

MontanaPBS — If you gave up your car, you would probably hop on the bus, the subway, or even dust off the old bicycle.  But, what if the end of the bus line was miles away, the nearest subway stop was five states over, and the two-wheeler had only one gear?

After all, there is a lot of ground to cover between New York City and Portland, Oregon.

MontanaPBS — as a part of Blueprint America — and the local Gallatin County Planning Board have begun a study to develop a non-motorized trail system throughout Gallatin County, Montana.

Already, a week-long interconnect challenge through the back country of Gallatin County by mountain bike, dirt bike, kayak, canoe, and, even, horse took place July 20-25 this past summer.

Take a look at the website created to document the beginnings of the trail system.
