In Germantown, Schnitzelburg, and Shelby Park
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 11, 2017) — 2017’s first CycLOUvia, a popular event promoting alternative transportation, will be held on Saturday in Three Points—Germantown, Schnitzelburg and Shelby Park.
CycLOUvia will move in a circular route through the Germantown, Schnitzelburg and Shelby Park neighborhoods, also known as Three Points, via Goss Avenue, Logan Street and Shelby Street. Goss, Logan and Shelby will be closed to vehicular traffic from 2-6 p.m. Many businesses along the corridor will be open and engaging participants.
CycLOUvia is designed to encourage more communities to close streets to cars and open them to people. It’s an opportunity to experience transportation in a unique atmosphere, by walking, cycling, skateboarding, or dancing in the street. CycLOUvia repurposes these public spaces by temporarily replacing traditional vehicular traffic with pedestrian traffic.
Since 2012, CycLOUvia events have attracted tens of thousands of people to neighborhoods across the city. CycLOUvia is a part of Mayor Greg Fischer’s Healthy Hometown Movement and promotes healthy lifestyles, alternative transportation, safety and economic development.
