In my rides the last few days both in the Keewatin and Hibbing areas, I have found the trail to be in great shape. Appears to have been swept in most areas as I have found very little debris on the trail. And a friend of mine sent me this picture yesterday of the progress being made on the reroute in between Hibbing and Chisholm.
So it looks like things are progressing quite nicely. Speaking of biking if you haven't check out my post for the National Bike Challenge, do so. An update today from them is that it is now truly a national challenge with riders signed up in all 50 states!
