Requires registration and payment to participate. This mobile session will give participants the opportunity to experience a section of the Louisville Loop by bike. We’ll start inside with an overview of the Loop, a planned 100+ mile shared use path around Louisville, and then we’ll head out to the trail for an easy, nearly flat ride down to Distillery Bend. Along the way, we’ll stop a few times to hear from Parklands staff and folks involved in the project. We’ll learn about the Parklands efforts to help protect open space and wildlife habitat, as well as their plantings and restoration programs. Finally, we will learn a bit about some of the design and engineering challenges encountered in the Parklands. Bring your own bike and helmet or register to rent them for an additional fee. Those wanting to get a little more exercise and enjoy a longer, more challenging ride may continue with John beyond Distillery Bend and see more of the Parklands.
