Sheboygan is planning on changing an old overgrown railroad track into a useful bicycle and pedestrian path. The bicycle path will help create North-South bicycle and pedestrian traffic inside the central city of Sheboygan.
The best part of the Sheboygan bicycle path will be that it connects urban areas allowing people in the city to commute by bicycle or just go for a ride. According to Tom Huber, State Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, “For me personally, I would rank it way on top just because of its geography and for the fact that it's very close to where people live and where people work."
According to the Sheboygan Press, 86 manufacturing companies (employing 5000 people) are located within one mile of the trail.
Being a Sheboyganite myself, I am happy to see the City working hard to keep itself bicycle friendly. When I was growing up in Sheboygan, we had a lot of great roads to bike on including the bicycle trail into Kohler.
