Walk, don’t ride

Here’s a transportation challenge from the Carbondale Trails Committee. “Greetings from your Trails Committee. It’s springtime and we would like to encourage all our residents to try and not drive on each Thursday for the entire summer. Please ride your bike or walk on Thursday, at least. Thank you.”
