How about a cycling race along Potomac River?
Anyone who is enthusiastic about cycling should enjoy watching the Tour de France. This is a remarkable race from the strength of these athletes who have the agility of pedaling through the heights and lows of the mountains, the curves of the roadway and enduring the weather. They are truly amazing. They are remarkable.
I made the suggestion years ago that a “Tour” should be considered between Morgan County and Allegany County — the roadway along the Potomac River.
It can send a very positive message to the young that great athletes do not have to carry, kick or throw a ball to be an athlete.
We need to bring an Olympic-size pool, gymnasiums and even a polo field to the area. Bring the diversity of sports into the home where one has a child who has their sights on being another Michael Phelps, Simone Biles or even Bradley Wiggins.
As law enforcement and elected officials are cleaning up downtown Cumberland, let’s bring the diversity of sports into the picture to help those young kids to set goals, eat right and exercise whether they want to enjoy their sport for entertainment or go for the gold!
Let’s work together as a team and give them the choices they deserve.
