Bike trail in Sherman now open

SHERMAN, TX - After ten months of construction a new mountain bike trail has opened in Sherman.

For the first time Saturday, Cyclists got to try out the trail at Binkley Park. It is for beginning and intermediate riders and stretches nearly three-miles long.

The city of Sherman donated 60 acres for the course and one Sherman resident says it is great for the entire family.

"It's a great workout," said Jason Griffin. "Cycling is great for your joint as well as your cardiovascular. We're going to expand this up to about seven and half to eight miles total length. This is just the initial opening."
