West Hartford is a great town for walking, with well developed sidewalks all around town.
But, the roads weren't designed for cars and bicycles to coexist.
Bike West Hartford has worked with the Town to mark a few bikeways on less traveled roads.
I went to the high school to photograph a Bike West Hartford ride, but Mary was the only one there.
We discovered that the group had gathered at another side of the school.
Mary was a freelance writer for publications like National Geographic and the Smithsonian.
She moved back to Connecticut a few years ago to become the head of
the creative writing program at Central Connecticut State University.
