This past weekend, Mike Perkins, TimberHomes’ kiosk manager tabled at the New England Bike-Walk Summit in Boston. The event was held by East Coast Greenways which is a national organization dedicated to creating safe passage for bikers, walkers, wheelchair users and more up and down the East Coast. Their vision is to eventually create a continuous 3000 mile trail network, from Maine to Florida, for recreationalists and commuters alike.
Having done a large project with Burlington’s Local Motion in 2016, TimberHomes and especially Mike Perkins, an avid biker himself, are excited to work for bicycle enthusiasts. Being at the event gave TimberHomes the opportunity to network with the people who are working on developing bike path projects, and to hopefully interest them in a wayfinding kiosk or another product from the company product line for the side of a trail or rest area.
As part of its sponsorship of the event, TimberHomes’ donated a Mini Kiosk which was raffled off. At the end, the kiosk was awarded to Barbara Amodio of Bike Walk Bolton (CT). Her organization works closely with Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Capital Region Council of Governments (CRCOG), and the Town of Bolton to advance safe, non-motorized transport in the Bolton area. The kiosk will be installed later this season at one of two possible locations along a Bolton bike path.
