SWFBUD has worked for several years to get Hillsborough County to build the Bypass Canal Trail from New Tampa to State Road 60 and I was happy to hear about the open house on the project held Thursday. SWFBUD members Randy Myhre of Oliver's and J. Steele Olmstead were among those in attendance. You want a regional paved trail network? Then call and write your county commissioners. Major bicycle improvements will happen only when you get involved in the political process.
