It’s now May and I think it’s 90% safe to say that spring is finally here. With the warmer weather comes increased traffic on the Lakefront Trail, especially with the abundance of scheduled 5Ks, 10Ks, and half-marathons. 

Be prepared for your lakefront bike ride or jog by checking out the following list of weekend events. And for regular trail updates, visit our Lakefront Trail Conditions page or follow our Twitter feed (@ActiveTransLFT).
