My Hero!

Chuck Harmon finished the Underground Railroad Bicycle Trail ride last weekend, and he has written a series of blog entries about it. I really admire Chuck for his determination in completing the ride, as well as for his work in planning the Ohio section of the route.

He also had the inspiration of tying public libraries into the trail, so you have to love the guy!

George, thanks for blogging about Chuck's biking adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed reading his posts all the more because I know the Owen Sound area fairly well as I have family there....or I thought I knew it. I had no idea it was part of the underground railroad.

Hi Alane,

Owen Sound was often referred to as "The Last Stop" on the Underground Railroad because it was one of the most Northern communities where freedom seekers settled. Attached is a link to more information about the community's role in the URR.
