Connecting to recreational amenities by foot or bike has been difficult in Beloit. The sidewalk leading from downtown to Chautauqua Park ends in a rock-filled parking lot, before the grain elevator with its truck traffic, six sets of railroad tracks and a highway bridge over the Solomon River. That means children, including Jayden Mosher and Riley Croisant, have
to be wary when riding their bikes to the Beloit swimming pool using that route.
