To the editor:

The Eagle had an excellent article on bicycling in the Berkshires this morning, but left out a key piece of news: Our existing bike path, the Ashuwillticook, has been undergoing reconstruction this summer and will fully reopen in just a few weeks.

From what I have seen, it is better than new, with an excellent surface and sides, widened gates and improved sight lines near road crossings. The south section, which has been opened since July, now has spectacular family usage. This reopening deserves an article all by itself.

James N. Cawse,
