New Belgium Brewing Company has given $2,500 to support the Kosciusko/Natchez Trace Bicycle Safety Program. Donna Holdiness who is the local Tourism Director also heads up cycling safety for the parkway. According to Holdiness, The Natchez Trace is now a pilot program for cycling safety in all national parks. “We’ve made a lot of progress and now attracting sponsors like New Belgium is very encouraging and just think the center of this national program is Kosciusko!”, said Holdiness. The grant is being used to purchase high powered front and rear lights, plus mirrors and high-vis clothing to give to cyclists on the Trace. This is the peak time of year for cycling the Natchez Trace. Many of the tour groups are staying overnight in Kosciusko. “ The word is getting out that Kosciusko is a cycling friendly town”, according to Holdiness. Holdiness is also working with Trek Bikes and Clemson University on their “Science of Being Seen” project. Click here to learn more.
