Cyclouvia returns to downtown Louisville

Grab the handlebars for a ride down 4th Street.

CycLOUvia offers bikers of all ages the opportunity to take over Louisville’s streets for a day.

Earlier this month, we told you about biking groups in Louisville, and that got our wheels spinning.

If you’ve also got bike on the brain, get ready to take a spin downtown. CycLOUvia is set to return to Derby City on Sunday, June 9.

Jump on your bike, scooter, or just lace up your shoes for a walk from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., as 4th Street will be shut down to car traffic from Main Street to just south of Broadway — that’s about six blocks.

It’s the latest installment of the event, which dates to 2012. In years past, bikers had the right of way on Bardstown Road, Frankfort Avenue, and Main Street — and there might be more of them in the future.

Did you know: CycLOUvia draws inspiration for its name from the Colombian concept of ciclovía, meaning “cycleway.”
