(21)The trail was planned, the construction company donated a small bulldozer for demolition. (22)The bulldozer cleared a path, dredging out a few places where the trail crossed the creek. (23)The riders knew that water crossings would make an exciting trail. (24)Once the bulldozer had done the work: many volunteers donated several weekends to prepare the trail for riders. (25)They smoothed the trail and removed obstacles that the bulldozer had left behind. (26)They placed signs and markers along the trail to make sure bikers knew the route. (27)The construction took two months of work, but now Roosevelt Park has a rewarding bike trail.

(28)I have been on the Roosevelt Park bike path many times. (29)It has many ups and downs, bumps and jumps; it is a great ride. (30)This trail is becomming one of the community’s important exercise spots. (31)I can’t keep up with Christy when we ride together, but I am glad that she decided to work hard to initiate the creation of the Roosevelt Park bike path. (32)Christy deserves this award because she acted on her dream, causing a community to come together.
