Mayor Fischer Proclaims January 27, 2018, Paul Battle Day

January 29, 2018

Paul Battle has ridden 150,000 miles since joining Louisville Bicycle Club. The proclamation was a surprise to Paul, who said, "I did not set out to ride 150,000 miles; I just started out to ride my bicycle." Paul was honored at the Louisville Bicycle Club annual dinner, along with riders such as Larry Preble, who achieved 100,000 lifetime miles; Jerry Gordon, Glenn Toddy, and John Larson, who each achieved 75,000 lifetime miles; and Bob Schindler, Steve Montgomery, Jeff White, and Nita Bernat, who achieved 50,000 lifetime miles. Additional awards included Volunteer of the Year, Mad Dog finishers, and Hall of Fame honorees.
