An event bicycle
enthusiasts have known about for years is finally being recognized in
Columbus and along the whole of the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway.
The Underground Railroad Bicycle Route follows the path black Americans
who were enslaved in the South followed to freedom in the North.
The bike trail begins in Mobile, Ala., and stretches to Ontario,
Canada. It goes directly up the Tenn-Tom Waterway and riders travel
through Columbus and Lowndes County on their way north.
