A 7-mile bikeway that would run through Stoneham, Winchester, and Woburn has received crucial community support, paving the way to make the 21-year-old concept a reality.
The Tri-Community Bikeway had strong advocates in Stoneham and Winchester but suffered from a lack of organized support in Woburn until members of the Woburn Residents' Environmental Network decided to take up the charge last week as the project reached a critical phase.
"We are trying to get the whole thing together so it doesn't fall apart," said Rodney Flynn, treasurer of the Woburn organization. "We are the missing piece between the Stoneham group and the Winchester group."
