Any other words of advise or comments?

I feel what Preble Trails is doing is a great thing for the community.  I am always concerned about safety while riding my bike on the road, with everyone on there phones texting, distracted etc.  Anything we can do to make the roads safer for Bikers, runners and walkers is a good thing.
