    A bike with a 32mm tire will handle the trail. There's grass, gravel and dirt, roots, curbs, etc... it's not really a bike path, more a walking path that allows bikes.

    I'll say one thing for Apple, lot's less crap and Verizon adds nothing to the phones. I think Apple has VZW by the balls and has told them "no VZW crapware, only WE can load crapware".

    That's a really silly thing to be concerned about. Really.

    Some other choices:
