FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE       August 7, 2001

SECOND BIKE FERRY DEMONSTRATES
TRAIL’S FUTURE LINKAGE TO SOUTH HERO


SOUTH HERO, VT – For the first time since the Rutland Railroad abandoned
service on the Island Line in 1962, people will once again be able to travel
between Burlington and the Champlain Islands on the former rail corridor
August 18th & 19th.

A one-weekend demonstration bike ferry at the cut in the Colchester/South
Hero causeway will be operating concurrently with the Winooski River Bike
Ferry – enabling the public to walk, jog and bicycle through Lake Champlain.

At 10 am on August 18th, Gov. Dean (invited), the South Hero Rec Path
Committee, and local officials will officially reopen the newly
rehabilitated South Hero rail corridor transformed into a multi-use trail
and an upgraded Fish & Wildlife access.  Following the ceremony, both bike
ferries will operate continuously Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to sunset.
A $5 donation per person is requested to help fund a permanent crossing
across the cut.  For those who drive to the event, please park at Folsom
School in South Hero, Airport Park in Colchester or Leddy Park in
Burlington.

SPECIAL EVENTS IN SOUTH HERO!
Pedal up to the Islands and enjoy the orchards and vineyards.  SATURDAY,
Snow Farm Winery will offer tours at 11am and 2pm, wine tasting, and a
picnic catered by South Wind Market.  SUNDAY, Allenholm Farm will offer hay
ride tours at Noon, 1pm and 2pm, fresh apple pie and a “Petting Paddock” of
goats, ponies, donkeys and more!  In case of severe weather, call 652-BIKE
for the status of bike ferry operation.

A COOPERATIVE VENTURE
Local towns, VTrans and the non-profit Local Motion are collaborating on an
effort to transform the old Rutland Railroad Island Line into one of the
country’s most spectacular rail trails.  In May, Colchester, South Hero,
North Hero and Local Motion secured funds to plan a stabilization effort for
the three-mile causeway between Colchester Point and Allen Point in South
Hero.  The planning work is underway.
