Bicycle Rest Area

Bicyclists take a break – Sam Leigh photo

There’s a new bicycle rest area on the island. About 3 miles from town on Roche Harbor Road, Sam Leigh and Paul Hopkins have made a nice place for bicyclists to stop for a bit and relax, and maybe make a minor repair or adjustment and sit on a couple of lawn chairs in the shade under a tree.

When asked what was their inspiration, Sam said: “We have already seen many cyclists stop in the driveway. And when we got the yard fenced the idea came to mind to create the little cutout. We would like it to be something visible and rest “worthy”…  there is still another 6.7 miles to get to Roche Harbor!”

There’s a tic-tac-toe board on the picnic table for those so inclined and lots of bicycle yard art for added ambience. Coming soon will be a cooler with drinking water.

You’ve probably seen the bike wheels decorating the fence as you went past. It’s about half way between Seaview Lane and Three Meadows Lane.
