The trail is made safer if more people are using it. Its incidents like this that makes it important for the community to take steps to ensure that the trail is made as safe and inviting as possible.
We applaud the Montgomery County Sheriff and Norristown Police for stepping up patrols and to Montgomery County Parks and volunteers from the bicycling community for taking steps to build a positive relationship between trail users and Norristown residents. We hope ideas such as a community bike center similar to Neighborhood Bike Works takes hold and enables the young people of Norristown to take advantage of this wonderful resource in their own back yard.
