The Office of Planning, in partnership with the Highland Commerce Guild, are hosting a CycLOUvia event in the Highlands on Sunday, October 22.

“I’m thrilled to top off another year of great CycLOUvia events with the Tom Owen CycLOUvia in the Highlands! It’s a wonderful opportunity for people to experience the many unique local businesses and restaurants only the Highlands has to offer,” said Mayor Craig Greenberg. “This event encourages our community to get active and promotes bike and pedestrian safety for all Louisvillians.”

The original CycLOUvia event on Bardstown Road was held in 2012 and has occurred around the city for over a decade. Other events in 2023 were on Main Street in June and the Three Points area in September. To top off the annual tradition, CycLOUvia will return to Bardstown Road for the final event of the year.

“CycLOUvia is the event for all residents and visitors of Louisville to enjoy the iconic and unique collection of Highlands establishments. Whether you seek entertainment, food, or services you will find it here,” said Aaron T. Givhan, president of the Highland Commerce Guild. “If you are walking, skating or biking, please take this opportunity at your own adventurous pace!”

CycLOUvia in the Highlands will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, October 22. During that time, Bardstown Road, from Grinstead Drive to Douglass Boulevard, will be closed to motorized vehicles, allowing people to bike, walk, skate or scoot on the roadway - enjoying vendors and activities along the way! Traffic control officers will provide facilitated motorist crossings at Eastern Parkway.

Metro Council District 8 Councilman Ben Reno-Weber said, “We’re excited to welcome people from across our city and beyond to this opportunity to enjoy the Highlands.”

CycLOUvia is Louisville’s perennial Open Streets program that celebrates alternative transportation and centers the pedestrian experience in mobility. Louisville Metro has implemented several new initiatives, including Safe Routes to School, Vision Zero Louisville, and Community Crosswalks, that bring together a diverse coalition of stakeholders to improve our streets and roads for all vulnerable road users. The city was recently awarded a $21 million Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) implementation grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to fund safety improvements for 10 corridors in Louisville--a grant program that advances Louisville’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating roadway fatalities by 2040. In collaboration with KYTC, Louisville just completed the Bardstown Road rightsizing project. The 2023 Bardstown Rd CycLOUvia will be the first event held on the new infrastructure.
