The group of students researched and wrote a grant proposal as part of Clarksville Academy’s Challenge Based Learning (CBL) for two additional Clarksville BCycle stations.

Based on feedback received from community members, the two new stations will be located at the Clarksville Greenway at the Pollard Road Trailhead, and downtown at the corner of Public Square and Franklin Street. Stations are expected to be installed this Spring.

“The City of Clarksville is delighted to partner with Clarksville Academy students to provide more bike-sharing in downtown and at the Greenway, and we appreciate their efforts and the Health Foundation grant,” Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan said. “Bikes fit our mission to provide more fitness and recreation opportunities for our residents and visitors, so this is a welcome addition.”

Similar to the  other two stations at Liberty Park and Cumberland Riverwalk, each station will house 10 BCycles. Bikes rented from one station may be returned to any of the other stations. Clarksville BCycle 24 Hour memberships start at $3.00, and entitle the rider to unlimited 60 minute bike rides. Rides lasting longer than an hour incur $1.00 usage fee for each additional 30 minutes. Individuals can purchase weekly, monthly, and annual memberships online that allow the rider to skip the kiosk and checkout bikes directly from the dock using the app or personal B-card.

About the Challenge Based Learning Program (CBL)

The Challenge Based Learning (CBL) program at Clarksville Academy challenged students with ways in which they could improve their community. The CBL classroom shifts the typical setting in which one instructor teaches set curriculum to multiple students. CBL reverses that model, allowing the challenge to be formulated and investigated, consulting with experts in varying fields as resources, defining guiding questions, and resulting in a sustainable solution all led by the students.
