Bike path leads to gates of Elkhart County Fairgrounds

GOSHEN, Ind. -- Friday kicked off the second largest county fair in the country - the Elkhart County 4H Fair.  Getting to the fair can mean long waits in traffic, so this year, organizers partnered with the city of Goshen to build a bike path.

"You can ride from Goshen High School all the way to gate 5 of the fairgrounds, so it's a bike path to the fairgrounds," says Tim Yoder, the 2014 fair board president.  

The bike path follows along Monroe Steet, dropping pedestrians and bikers off at the front gates of the fair.  

"It's just a nice safe ride," says Yoder.
