DNR Katy Trail Ride 2005

Could I make the entire Katy Trail on a hybrid bike, rather than a road bike? My hybrid is pretty light.

I don't think any bikes were used to make the KATY trail. Seriously, could you rephrase the question? People use all kinds of bikes to ride the KATY trail. While I've logged 90+% of my KATY miles on road style bikes, I'd say hybrids and mountain bikes are more common than road bikes.

I beg to differ. Had bikes not been being used by avid riders like yourself.....the Katy Trail would not be what it is today.

Bikes were used to make the Katy Trail.

Yes, you will be fine with a hybrid, I would recommend the hybrid over the road bike for riding the Katy Trail.

Indeed, metaphorically, bikes built the KATY trail.

Hm, a clever bunch, you Katy Trailers are. Thank you for the input.
