An 11,000-square-foot, two-story bicycling and fitness center is headed for the Trailhead at Clearfork on the Trinity River in west Fort Worth, Cassco Development said Wednesday.

Mayor Betsy Price helped make the announcement before her Wednesday Tour de Fort Worth bike ride, which began at the Trailhead, Cassco’s outdoor recreational venue on the riverfront in the Clearfork development.

“This is going to be a phenomenal facility,” Price said.

The center, to be called The Trailhead Cycling and Fitness Center, will include a full-service bike shop, coffee and juice bar, fitness studio, and second-story rooftop bar overlooking the Trinity.

Construction will begin this fall, with completion scheduled for Spring, Cassco said.

Paxton Motheral, vice president of Cassco Development, said the center will be an “urban oasis.”

“We are now taking the original idea one step further,” he said “With nearly 11,000 square feet of space, we are creating an urban oasis for the fitness community that is directly connected to the trail system.”

Cassco is talking with several potential local and regional operators for the bike shop, but doesn't want a chain, Motheral said.

"We definitely want something that's more of a local flavor," he said.

Besides typical bike shop services, the shop will also have a training facility for serious cyclists, he said.

The center will front the river on the west side of the Trailhead, he said.

Renderings show significant glass fenestration facing the river.

“We really want to open it up,” Motheral said.

Cassco launched the Trailhead in fall 2013, collaborating with active-lifestyle community partners to offer complimentary fitness classes and activities like yoga, Pilates, Crossfit, and rock climbing.
