Louisville - Councilman Tom Owen will soon begin his annual Summer Bike Tour of visiting ten neighborhoods and small cities in District 8 before the Summer is over. His first stop: the Upper Highlands starts the week of July 7th.

“As I have in years past, I’ll ride every street in my district to give my constituents a chance to meet me,” says Owen. “This is nothing formal, just a chance to meet and greet people where they live.”

Owen began these bike tours a few years ago as a way to make himself asccessable to the people of District 8.

Dates and neighborhoods for this year’s Summer bike ride-bys are:
