What do project management, a chiropractor, a trail system designer, volunteer laborer and community advocate have in common? A successful grassroots project that built a trail system in our community!
Join us on March 26th to hear how Rob Lavoie and a core group of like-minded people created and executed on their vision to build a multi-use trail network, which now spans over 21 miles on municipal and private land.

Rob says it best:
"Wellness, family, and the active population have been a staple of my practice as it reflects my personal life. I've always enjoyed being outdoors since I was a child. Mountain biking has been a passion of mine for over 20 years. When I moved to Gorham there was only 2-5 miles of abandoned railway or discontinued roads to ride bike on. With the demands of self employment and starting a family, it became more difficult to travel to neighboring communities to ride my bike. It was then when I decided to create a trail network where I lived and worked".
