The Return of the Bike Ferry [314]

6/15/13: This Saturday at the "cut" in the Colchester-South Hero causeway section of the Island Line Trail, Local Motion supporters gathered to celebrate the reopening of the bike ferry. Record flooding in 2011 severely eroded the trail and put the bike ferry out of commission for 2 years. After the repairs, the causeway connecting Colchester and South Hero is back and better than ever, and the bike ferry has an extended season.

Community members and businesses gathered on a sunny morning to celebrate the success of The Big Fix campaign and take a short ferry ride across the cut. Eva rode her bike out to experience this one-of-a-kind Vermont trail with breathtaking views.

Music: Kangaroo, Demos, "Waters of the World"
