We told you about the Bike Depot’s plans to open a new Frankfort Avenue bike store and courier service location back in September, but lost track of the development thereafter. The new location has been open since its November 1st grand opening and is situated at the corner of Frankfort Avenue and New Main Street at the railroad tracks.
This is the second Bike Depot location (the other’s on the corner of 2nd and Market Streets). A third location just south of the University of Louisville campus is on hold for the time being, but it could move forward as the economy improves and the other two locations become more established.
The grand opening event was evidently well attended and full of festivities. Here’s some info from the Bike Depot site:
What a great event!!! Over 140 people signed in, a ten year old boy won the free bike, lots of cycling freebies were given away, Walter Lay, Tim Chilton and Lisa Cates made wonderful music, Heine Brothers and Rainbow Blossom provided great beverage and food, Dirk Gowin of the city of Louisville, Barry Zalph of Bicycling for Louisville, Cassandra Culin of Clifton Community Council, Tim Allen and Joe Ward of Crescent Hill Community Council, Don Burch of Frankfort Avenue Business Association and Louisville Independent Business Association all represented their organizations well. And the weather (70 and sunny), who was responsible for that?
