I went up the ramp at the eastern trailhead of the 606 at Marshfield to ride the trail to the western trailhead where the opening ceremonies were. The cameramen jockey for position, and a drone hovers overhead.
Bless Mayor Emanuel. Not only did he WALK a bicycle to get things started, he walked it on the WRONG SIDE OF THE TRAIL, hopefully not setting a precedent for things to come.
And I implore all walkers and families with small children: Stay to your right, and be aware of bicycles behind you. Don't let "ON YOUR LEFT" be the last words you hear!
