By Stephen Frothingham

WASHINGTON (BRAIN) — The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy will hold its fifth annual Opening Day for Trails on Saturday, April 8, and expects as many as 20,000 people to participate in family-friendly events connected to the promotion on that day.

Fuji Bikes and Performance Bicycle are sponsoring the events and participants who pledge to take part in any Opening Day activity are eligible to win prizes from those sponsors.

“Trails connect people—whether it’s getting together with friends and family on the trail or using trails to get where they want to go,” said Brandi Horton, vice president of communications at RTC. “On Opening Day this year, we expect a record number of participants will bring that spirit to life at events across the country. We will celebrate the appreciation we share for trails and the connections they create in our communities.”

Those interested in participating can find or register events via Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s Opening Day website.
