    mobile trail conditions?

    I'll be down in Mobile first of the week on business. Any news about the trail conditions after the hurricane? I've ridden the University trails and Chikasabogue park. I havnt tried the others yet.

    How about the swayback in montgomery? I dont have any info as to whether the storm reached that far north....

    are they rideable? or should i pack my road bike?

    thx

    Swayback is in great shape

    There was an adventure race type thing there last weekend and the trail has been (mostly) cleared of encroaching brush. It's nice and dry and there are no trees down as of last Friday. We didn't really get much of Katrina, so it didn't bother the trail. We now have about 12.5 miles of single track so if you ride a lap in each direction it's a good 2 or 2.5 hour ride. Way fun.

    Let me know if you come up and need a guide. I can go most days after work, around 4:30 or so.

    The standing eight count & three knockdown rules are in effect on this trail.

    i would like to say that i savor the trail "soul-ride" fashion, but the reality is I'm just slow
