May 12-20, 2007 answers
  • Who R U and what is this?
  • Do they wish the old mile markers were back? The mile markers were a great way to keep track.
  • I would like to know if my fellow path users think the environment is the greatest priority for our concerns and joys. Steph
  • How they feel about the surface conditions on the path. PS: great idea and great box.
  • Do you wear your helmet? Do you like me? Do you wear boxers or briefs?
  • I'd want to express my gratitude to sister and brother travelers on this path for your hellos, your "on your left" when my little one and I are cruisiung with our stroller at a slow pace, for the bits of overheard conversation for funny moments shared -- like sharing news about smelling the first skunk of spring, not far from where I write this.
  • Will the path be plowed in winter? Can there be a cross country skiing dedicated lane? Can there be extra bike lanes in Burlington?
  • Wow. This is just the best walking and biking path. Nothing like it in Pawlet VT.
  • Do you remember the rules? Pass on left. Stay alert. Be nice.

What is Burlington Bike Path Speak?

We've installed an informal survey kiosk at mile 1 of the Burlington Bike Path (VT) to generate community discussion on a wide range of topics -- some fun and some serious.

Why do this you ask? Our friend Noah had 31 kiosks left over from his 2006 Northern Forest Canoe Trail survey project. The kiosks were lonely sitting in his back yard. We decided it would be fun to put one of his kiosks on the path and see what happened.

Every week, we'll change the question and post the week's answers here. Simple as that. We hope you'll speak up.
