As bike paths go, this one in Minnesota promises to be above average thanks to radio host Garrison Keillor.
Keillor is allowing a new $1.5 million bicycle trail to be dubbed the Lake Wobegon Trail, named after his mythical hometown where "the women are strong, the men are good-looking and the children are above average."Keillor, author and host of Minnesota Public Radio's "A Prairie Home Companion" plans to attend the trail's grand opening in the town of Albany, population 1,548, on Wednesday.
Much of the money for the 28-mile-long trail came from a federal program to fund bicycle trails. The trail was built on an abandoned railroad bed.
