The club, which formed in 2004 and has about 90 members, sponsors rides and special events, and hopes to add kids’ activities and a new focus on mountain biking in coming months.

King said the club is urging its membership to attend the Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department’s meeting at 6:00pm February 20th, 2018 at Liberty Park’s Freedom Point to discuss forming a bicycle and pedestrian advocacy group.

“I welcome the club’s input and urge its members to get involved in our efforts to make Clarksville easier for biking and walking,” Mayor McMillan said. “This is exactly the kind of citizen engagement we need.”

Mize said the group also wants to offer input on how to make the community’s road network more bike-friendly.

“We think there are some cost-effective solutions to improve bike accessibility, and we want to discuss these ideas with the appropriate Street Department and planning officials,” Mize said.

For example, the group has compiled a list of proposed road improvements for the Metropolitan Planning Organization’s master plan that focus on ways to connect existing bike routes and lanes.
