Look Who is riding the GAP- Westmoreland Trail!

 18 month old Patrick wanted nothing to do with riding in the trailer behind Grandma's bike. He preferred to explore the trail on his own two feet.
 

Gosh is a thru rider from the Netherlands. He is on the first leg of his ride across the United States. He is spending the night in one of the shelters at Cedar Creek Park. If you see him on the trail tomorrow give him a big GAP welcome.
