Monday May 13, 2013
Leave your car at home and grab your bike for Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17. Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or a first-time rider, you are urged to participate! There are six designated Meet & Ride locations in both Louisville and Southern Indiana. At each location, an experienced Ride Captain will be there to guide you on your commute. Then after work, meet up at Fourth Street Live at 5:15 p.m. to join your Ride Captains for the commute back to the Meet & Ride locations.
Meet & Rides
(Meet at 7:00 a.m.)
· Seneca Park at the basketball court parking lot, just west of the tennis courts
· Iroquois Park at the Amphitheater parking lot

Be sure to join Bike Louisville at noon for the lunchtime celebration at Fourth Street Live! Meet up with commuters, learn more about bicycle commuting, visit with vendors and just celebrate the bicycle.
