Trail Partners Grateful

Editor, News-Register:

Ohio Valley Trail Partners wish to extend a hearty THANK YOU to all our wonderful sponsors and donors, volunteers, and bikers, who made our 13th Wheeling Heritage Bicycle Tour a fine success.

OVTP ,through the years, has given back to the city of Wheeling and its fabulous trail system. Here are some of the ways:

Approximately $8,000 to patch cracks in the trail, $1,800 for a bike repair station next to the WesBanco Arena and trail, treated six trail bridges in Ohio and three trail bridges in Brooke County, purchased bicycle racks located around the city, donated funds to help the city buy and set up rental bikes to be located near WesBanco Arena, painted visibility lines in the Hempfield Tunnel known as Tunnel Green, rented a porta-jon located near the Pike Island Dam, contributed to trail committees in Brooke and Belmont Counties, and much more.

It’s estimated that trail group events like ours get less than 1 per cent of the people who use trails to take part in fundraiser trail events, and therefore, again, we thank and take our hats off to the wonderful folks who made this year’s Trail Tour another excellent success.
