Most Thursdays we enjoy Love Your Local Trail activities on the Monocacy Way. This week, at the request of the Historic Bethlehem Partnership we trimmed back the shrubs growing over the stairs between Burnside Plantation and the parking lot behind Martin Tower. This is in preparation for the fabulous Blueberry Festival. To have more fun on your local trail write firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bethlehem Bicycle Cooperative (BBC) is open for Members and Guests every Thursday from 5-9pm and Saturday from 8AM to 4PM. We are located at 14 West Raspberry in beautiful, downtown Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
