And thank you, Penny Gross - for completing the sidepaths along Little River Turnpike from Hummer/Heritage to the bridge sidepaths over the beltway.

Using the new path on the south side of LRT, I now have a way from my house to the Cross County Trail that avoids the hills on Americana, as well as the weaving among the tennis courts and ball fields by Audrey Moore Rec Center. Its faster, its easier (I will save the Americana hills till I have a real road bike - and its not like there aren't hills on the CCT itself) and since more of it is on the CCT itself, its more pleasant.
