The Fresno-Clovis rail-trail is essentially the one and only bicycle highway in the area. There are a couple of other trails, but it’s the only one connecting important nodes. As such, it’s pretty popular.
The trail passes through “downtown” Clovis, which is adjacent to the rodeo grounds. There is a section where the trail is sandwiched between parking and more parking. Most of the parking is used only for occasional events, like the rodeo, the cycling tour etc. For the majority of the year, it’s empty.
This week, an item related to the trail was up for vote at the council.
