A Discussion of Bicycles as Transportation in Louisville
If you bike for transportation, or bike-commute, or are interested in becoming a better urban cyclist, then this list is for you! By sharing experiences, innovations, and shortcuts we can make the urban biking experience better for us all. We're also dedicated to making Louisville a more bike-tolerant community, leading by example and (when necessary) by political action.

Update: Story is false. Retraction.
Construction has begun on a sidewalk linking people and businesses in the Clifton and Clifton Heights neighborhoods. Space for the sidewalk was created by narrowing Brownsboro Road from 4 travel lanes to 3 - a 'road diet'. This is a key technique for creating walkable and bikeable neighborhoods, and we hope that as soon as this project is seen as a success, we can start to look at road diets elsewhere too.
Activists gather after the Metro Council vote approving the road diet. The diet was approved unanimously.
Louisville Metro Government has a new web reporting tool you can use to report "close calls" on the road. The data you enter will be used to "assess potential conflict points and the frequency of near misses at these locations".
I plan to use this to report things like bullying crosswalk behavior - the sort of incident that is reckless, but something the police can't do anything with. If there's contact, or immediate danger, call 911.
The Ohio River Bridges project prioritizes car & truck dependence for the region at the cost of all other transportation alternatives. Your last chance to tell the government to find us better options is now through July 13. Follow this link and let them know what you think of their three options, none of which include significant increases to public transit service.
Firsty, the Brownsboro Sidewalk & Road Diet is up for final approval by Metro Council. Clifton [Heights] Community Councils are calling for public turn-out at the meetings, to hold signs and wear stickers. Be there or send the council a message of support.
Secondy, there will then be an immediate victory-party at Car Free Happy Hour:
