The proposal to plow the Minuteman Bikeway in Lexington is in the news today -- the Milford Daily News, for some reason.
Lexington was busy maintaining the trail yesterday, with both the tractor-mounted blower and the shoulder mower at work. When I saw the mower it had slid into the ditch east of Revere Street. This was probably the result of mowing with the ground still soft from Tuesday's heavy rains. Today there are deep ruts on the shoulder and mud on the trail to mark the spot.
The mower with the robot arm was on the job in Bedford. It fills the trail, but the driver is very patient about moving aside to let trail traffic pass.
Today: 13 miles. This year: 1209.2 miles.
