CycLOUvia is no longer the new kid on the block, with several successful Open Streets events already held on Frankfort Avenue and Bardstown Road and another great event on Broadway. Open Streets is the international initiative that shuts city streets to motorists for a day and opens it up to people, whether they’re walking, biking, or anything else.
And now it’s time to mark your calendars for the next CycLOUvia, and it’s going to be a big one. CycLOUvia is coming to Three Points!
That’s right, on Sunday, August 7, streets in Shelby Park, Germantown, and Schnitzelberg, will debut as a new route and a chance for you to explore even more of Louisville. (All three neighborhoods converge on a single point, dubbed Three Points by a citizen-led beautification group.)
Our “Eleven reasons CycLOUvia makes Louisville an even better city” still apply.
And Metro Louisville has another CycLOUvia innovation up its sleeve for event’s ninth iteration—the first ever circular route. The route covers of Goss Avenue north of Texas Avenue and Logan and Shelby streets connected by Mary Street and Goss.
CycLOUvia is scheduled for Sunday, August 7, 2016, from 2:00 to 6:00p.m. along segments of Goss Avenue, Logan Street, and Shelby Street.
Neighborhood associations have begun canvassing residents and businesses in the area. We hear that Smoketown USA and Scarlett’s Bakery will be open specifically for the event, and many other neighborhood favorites are sure to follow as details are worked out. CycLOUvia is free and open to the public.
See you on the street!
