A wonderful emerging resource for cycle commuters in the Louisville area is the transportation bike mailing list, an online email discussion group designed specifically for people who use their bicycle as their primary means of transportation.  Check out their website to subscribe to the mailing list and join the discussion!

A great way to find other bike commuters in the Louisville area is to visit the Louisville Bicycle Club website.  

Gear Up!
Of course, having the right equipment is key. Local bike shops have cycling gear designed for commuting, or they can order what you need.  Many employees of bike shops commute to work and can be a good resource for questions and sharing tips.

 

Participate!

The Mayor's Subway Fresh Fit Hike, Bike, and Paddle is a great day of fun and festivities celebrating the outdoors and healthy habits. Bike Louisville gives away helmets on a first come, first served basis. Over 800 helmets were given away in 2017!
