Tricyclist making a difference
Brent Devitt has been traveling the United States making a difference in every park he passes. With the cutting down of most of the Ash trees, the parks are missing a lot of trees. So, Devitt took his love of riding his recumbent and set out to make a difference. So, now, another year under his belt, he has a new cycling route this year and plans to plant more trees then ever.
This year’s 160-mile, 3 day cycling adventure will pass through Greene, Fayette & Ross counties in Ohio from Xenia to Chillicothe on the Jamestown Connector and Tri-County Paint Creek Trails.
Trees will be planted in public parks near the trail in Jamestown, Washington Court House and Chillicothe, Ohio. The goal is to raise awareness and $1,000 in support, in partnership with Dan Struve of QRST Nursery in Waynesville Ohio to deliver as many as 15 eight to ten foot foot native trees to be planted in these cities and parks.
