The Cape Fear Cyclists will use their $9,435 grant to complete a mountain bike trail and begin building a BMX track at the Blue Clay Bike Park in Wilmington, North Carolina. This new facility 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 in southeastern NC—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 Wilmington, and other parks.
