Pattie Smith Jacobus of Simsbury

Shoreline Greenway Trail will hold its annual meeting and celebration on Wednesday, May 25, at the Madison Senior Center Cafe beginning at 7 p.m. The featured speaker will be Pattie Smith Jacobus, a leader of an effort to make Simsbury, Connecticut, more bike-friendly and earn that town designation by the League of American Bicyclists as Connecticut’s first Bike-Friendly Community.

Jacobus is a founding member of Simsbury Free Bike, an all-volunteer bike-sharing program that evolved into the north-central Connecticut town’s principal bicyclist and pedestrian advocacy organization. She’ll discuss her group’s work and explain how expanding its approach from a local to a regional one helped enable success.

SGT will update attendees on recent progress and future plans for the trail, and conduct a brief election of officers for the coming year. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
