The Legacy Trail featured on the Osprey Nokomis Chamber of Commerce Chat Radio

The Osprey Nokomis Chamber of Commerce Chat Radio recently featured  a segment on The Legacy Trail.  Radio hosts Rod and Kim Thomas took a break from running their very popular Bentley’s Boutique Hotel and attached Morgan’s Restaurant in Osprey, FL to talk with a few members of the Friends of The Legacy Trail – President Chuck Butterfield, along with Carla Martin, Roger Normand, and Darryl Lang.  Their lively conversation spanned the history of the trail, some of the popular trail amenities, and ongoing efforts to extend the trail 8 miles north to Payne Park in the heart of downtown Sarasota.  Tune in the discussion here.

Rod and Kim are enthusiastic supporters of The Legacy Trail.  We are grateful for their many diverse acts of generosity, including allowing the Friends of the Legacy Trail to host the public meetings at Bentley’s.  Thank you, Rod & Kim!

Tour de Parks set for 20 March, 2016

Many riders from this year’s Tour de Parks expressed their enjoyment of doing the ride, but asked for more advanced notification of the event so they can better plan their participation.  We heard you.  The Friends of the Legacy Trail have set the date for next year’s Tour de Parks on Sunday, 20 March 2016.  Next year’s ride will again feature 15, 37, and 62 mile fully supported rides traversing many splendid area parks and scenic vistas.  Click here for one riders’ perspective on the 2015 TdP.
