Louisville neighborhoods hit the road for CycLOUvia

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Three Louisville neighborhoods hopped on bikes Saturday to not only enjoy the weather, but as a way to get to know each other.

CycLOUvia was started in 2012 by Mayor Greg Fisher as part of his Healthy Hometown Movement. 

Residents of Germantown, Schnitzelburg, and Shelby Park took part in bike raffles, bike repair clinics, games, and tours of the non-profit bike shop 

At the same time, a second event was happening, with one goal in mind.

"To beautify the Shelby Park neighborhood with pop-up shops, food trucks, benches, plants, to show what Shelby Park could look like," said Sarah Traughber, event organizer.

Several streets were closed down during the ride to increase safety.
