CYCLOUVIA IN THE HIGHLANDS RETURNS ON OCTOBER 10, 2021
CycLOUvia is back! The popular open streets event is returning to Bardstown Road on Sunday, October 10 from 2-6 p.m. Bardstown Road from Douglass Boulevard to Grinstead Drive will be closed to vehicular traffic, with facilitated crossings at Eastern Parkway.
CycLOUvia is your opportunity to experience Louisville as you never have before, by walking, cycling, skateboarding, or dancing in the street. Streets account for a massive amount of public land in all cities. CycLOUvia repurposes these public spaces by temporarily replacing traditional vehicular traffic with pedestrian traffic. Streets become paved parks where people of all ages, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds can come to improve their mental, physical, and emotional health.
Starting in 2012, CycLOUvia events have attracted tens of thousands of people to various neighborhoods across the city. In addition to being part of the Mayor's Healthy Hometown Movement, CycLOUvia promotes healthy lifestyles, alternative transportation, bike/pedestrian safety and economic development.
