Cyclouvia is returning to the Highlands Sunday, October 12th from 2:00 to 6:00 PM
Take a stroll, run, or ride down one of Louisville’s bustling urban corridors, not on the sidewalk, but right down the middle of the street. CycLOUvia is your opportunity to experience Louisville as you never have before, by walking, cycling, skateboarding, or dancing along infrastructure that is always there, but rarely prioritized for people.
Due to its overwhelming success, cyclouvia is returning to the Highlands neighborhood for the 3rd year in a row. The next event will be along a nearly 3 mile stretch of Bardstown Road/Baxter Avenue spanning from Douglass Boulevard to East Broadway. Non-motorized users will be allowed to take over the street from 2:00 to 6:00 PM on Sunday, October 12th, 2014. There will be police facilitated cross traffic allowed for motorists at Eastern Parkway and Grinstead Drive. TARC routes along the corridor will be slightly modified during the event. Please click on the link at the top of this page for detour information.
Thousands of people have attended cyclouvias in the past and this year’s Highlands event should be the biggest yet. Shops and restaurants along the corridor will be open and there will be some fun events occurring throughout the day that will create a unique, community atmosphere unlike any other.
Streets are Louisville’s greatest public space assets, encompassing more area than the city’s already robust parks system. They run in front of each of our homes and businesses. How we use these critical public spaces will determine how our city grows and reaches its potential in the future. CycLOUvia is an important step in realizing the value of our streets by transforming them into temporary linear parks, free for the use of the entire Louisville community.
