It's just a segment of bike trail. Why is this summer's completion a big deal?

RAGBRAI isn't the only thing that puts Iowa on the map for biking enthusiasts. Many around the country also can name not one but two Des Moines metro bike trails: the High Trestle Trail and the Raccoon River Valley Trail ? each widely known for its own superlative feature.

What does this link mean?
With its opening, the combined trails and other existing connections will provide a 120-mile loop, featuring the High Trestle's crown jewel bridge. That's not just an added attraction for local riders. It opens a new possibility for bike tourism, enticing visitors with the possibility of a multi-day ride without the hassle of sharing roads with cars.
