Tuesday May 15, 2012
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 15, 2012) – Leave your car at home and instead grab your bike for Bike to Work Day this Friday, May 18th. Join Mayor Greg Fischer and LMPD Chief Steve Conrad and others who will be commuting on two wheels this Friday.
Whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or a first-time rider, everyone can participate! There are four 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
(Plan to meet by 7am)
· Seneca Park at the basketball court parking lot, just west of the tennis courts
· Iroquois Park at the Amphitheater parking lot
· Shawnee Park at the Southwestern and Broadway entrance and bus stops along Market Street to join the ride
· Southern Indiana at the Park and TARC at Illinois Ave and 9th St.
Please visit www.louisvilleky.gov/bikelouisville for more information, including Meet & Ride maps and Bike to Work Day registration. Registrants will be entered in for a chance to win a Trek 7000 bike with pack and rack.
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. The winner of the bike will be selected during the celebration and additional prizes will be raffled off. Stop by for some free giveaways and meet with vendors who can help you learn how you can use the bicycle for transportation.
Bike to Work Day is sponsored by Bike Louisville and the Mayor’s Healthy Hometown Movement as well as WFPL/WFPK Radio, LEO Weekly, Heine Brothers Coffee, Vint and Whole Foods.
