Phenix City approves mountain bike trail

The trail will be adjacent to the Riverwalk and amphitheater

PHENIX CITY, Al (WRBL) - Bikers along the Riverwalk now have an off-road option.

Phenix City City Council approved a contract with Ride On Bikes of Columbus to complete a mountain bike trail along the Riverwalk. The trail was first unveiled at this years RiverFest.

The first of three sections of the trail is complete and is just under one mile in length. Once completed, the trail could be as long as three miles according to Jason McKenzine, co-owner of Ride On Bikes. McKenzine anticipates completion of the final two sections later this year.
