Blue Clay Wins Bikes Belong Grant
(updated: Aug 27, 2007)
A $9,435 grant will help the Cape Fear Cyclists to complete the mountain bike trail and build a BMX track at the Blue Clay Bike Park in Wilmington, North Carolina. This new facility currently includes the only legal trails for mountain bikers in the area, and is one of the few places where young people can ride in a car-free environment. When complete, the bike park will also include a skills area and pump track.
The Cape Fear Cyclists work to create great opportunities for everyone who rides a bicycle—from recreational cyclists, bike commuters, and road racers, to mountain bikers and BMX riders. As part of the Blue Clay project, CFC is pushing for bike lanes that will connect the park with the community college, downtown area, and other parks.
This is thrilling news. So a press release will be sent out to the local media and hopefully we'll get some good coverage out of it. Also look for an announcement on the www.bikesbelong.org website.
