Building a New Bike Trail

Building a New Bike Trail

Saturday’s chilly weather didn’t stop some trailblazers in Joplin. The Blue’s Bike Company got together to work on building a new bike trail in Dover Park, near Joplin’s soccer fields.

The group cleared brush and debris for a single track mountain bike trail. Officials say this trail will give local cycling enthusiasts a place to experience some of beautiful outdoor Joplin, while enjoying the sport they love.

“I think its really important. I think it also gives people a way to break away from the business of the day to day hustle and bustle across the community. This gives you a way to get out, clear your brain, and hang out in nature a little bit,” said Mark Cox, owner of Blue’s Bike Company.

Once complete, this will be the first off-road bike trail system in Joplin.
