The Kentucky State Fair (KSF) begins today, but good luck riding your bike there. Following the KSF’s fumble on bike parking that blew up last year, the fair board is on track to repeat many of the mistakes that have given the it a reputation as bike-unfriendly as far away as Dallas. Like last year, bikes will not be allowed inside the fairgrounds’ gates and the fair offers no incentives for cyclists to attend like other states do, causing jeers from local bike advocates. Which made us surprised to see the KSF proudly declare on its Facebook page:

Grab your helmets and bells, we are a bike friendly facility! In addition to bicycle racks at every gate, the Kentucky State Fair Bicycle Corral is located at Gate 4 in Lot H. The two new bicycle racks at Gate 6 off Preston are designed to meet the Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals national standards.

We spoke with Bicycling for Louisville and Metro Louisville’s Bike Louisville to figure out why significant changes weren’t made since last year and what could be done to make things better next year.

Bike Louisville also tipped us off on a fancy new app for MetroCall 311 that allows smart phone users to flag a problem on a map and even send in a photo of problems you see around town. The app runs on the iPhone and the Windows 7 phone, but the city is expecting a Droid version sometime soon. More info here. Also, we also have a See.Click.Fix map up there at the top of the page where you can tag problems you see across the metro area.

Bike Lou suggests that all of you bikers should go out a snap photos of potholes and debris in bike lanes across the city for a more pleasant cycling experience, and we have to agree. Get snapping!

Bike Louisville has created a pretty fancy infographic and it’s on display at a drivers license center near you. Here’s what they’re up to:

Bike Louisville is in the middle of distributing bike/ped safety messages to motorists in Jefferson County and across Kentucky. Check out the attached pull up banner that is now in all 5 drivers licensing centers in Jefferson County, including the lobby at Bowman Field where you take the written and drivers licensing tests.

What’s next? We are working on distibuting a 5 minute bike/ped safety video to all traffic school locations in all of Kentucky’s 120 counties. It’s part of the Paula Nye Memorial Grant we received, a state grant from the Share the Road license plates!
