Participate in Louisville's Fall Bike to Work Day
Monday September 26, 2011
Louisville’s first fall Bike to Work Day is this Friday, Sept. 30, and Mayor Greg Fischer is participating and urging other cyclists to join the commute.
After riding his bike to work in May for the spring Bike to Work Day, Fischer arrived downtown with a large group riding in from Seneca Park and said, “we should do this more often!” The city’s Bike Louisville program agreed and began planning a fall biking event.
“I’ll be riding my bike to work this Friday and I urge Louisville citizens to ride their bikes to work as well,” Fischer said. “Riding to work is a great experience -- it takes you out of traffic onto less traveled roads and you can meet up and ride with others on the way in, get some exercise, and save some gas money.”
There will be three Meet and Ride locations where bike commuters can meet on September 30 to ride as a group to worksites in downtown Louisville. The Meet and Ride locations are:
- Seneca Park Meet & Ride - 7:00 a.m.
Meet at the basketball court parking lot just west of the tennis courts
- Shawnee Park Meet & Ride - 7:00 a.m.
Meet at the Southwestern and Broadway entrance
- Iroquois Park Meet & Ride - 7:00 a.m.
Meet at the Amphitheater parking lot
Mayor Fischer will join other riders at the Seneca Park Meet & Ride this Friday at 7 a.m.
Those who register for Bike to Work Day will be eligible to win a Trek 7000 bike at the Bike to Work celebration that will be held at noon on Friday, September 30 at Fourth Street Live.
