Ford Street Mountain Bike Trail Park to open June 28th

The City of Clarksville’s Parks and Recreation Department invites the public to the Ford Street Mountain Bike Trail Park on Saturday, June 28th to celebrate the official grand opening of the newly constructed mountain biking trail park.

A ribbon cutting ceremony with Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan and special guest speakers will be held at 10:00am at the Ford Street Mountain Bike Trail Park, located on Ford Street.

The ceremony will be followed by a group mountain bike ride highlighting the new trail. The trail will be open for others as well. The Bicycle Center and Riverside Bike Shop will be on hand to offer bike maintenance, safety features, instructions, and gear for sale.

At this time, the new park consists of a 2.2-mile, advanced-level trail loop designed for experienced mountain bikers. The park’s maintenance staff, local COGS, IMBA/SORBA as well as volunteers contributed to the year-long project.

The 2.2 miles is only the beginning as eventually the Park will have miles of trail designated for advanced, intermediate, and novice riders. It is anticipated that another ¾-miles will be open by mid to late August, as trail development continues weekly.

All members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend. Those interested in riding are asked to bring their own equipment, as there will be only limited equipment available on a first come, first serve basis.
