CycLOUvia invites you to walk, bike or dance down Frankfort Ave.

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Keith Kaiser is taking a ride with this weekend's cycling event on Frankfort Avenue.

Imagine taking a stroll down one of Louisville's busiest 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 down the middle of Frankfort Avenue.

The next cycLOUvia is planned for Sunday, April 13th from 2:00 to 6:00 pm along a 2 mile stretch of Frankfort Avenue from the Pope Street to Stilz Avenue.

Cross traffic will be allowed at Ewing Avenue.

CycLOUvia is modeled after the "ciclovía" program in Bogotá, Colombia, where for 30 years, citizens have enjoyed weekly car-free streets.

Besides offering a safe new way to experience Louisville, cycLOUvia helps to promote healthy lifestyles, alternative transportation options, bicycle and pedestrian safety, and economic development.

CycLOUvia helps to make Louisville a more active, healthy, and livable city.

CycLOUvia events also meet the goals of the city's Healthy Hometown Movement, which helps to establish healthier places, programs and policies toward making Louisville one of the healthiest cities in the country.
