CycLOUvia Will Be Held In Three Points On August 19

2018’s second CycLOUvia, the popular event showcasing alternative transportation, is returning to Three Points—Germantown, Schnitzelburg, and Shelby Park—on Sunday, August 19, Mayor Fischer announced.

To support and highlight the growing business activity on Logan Street, the route will stretch on Goss Avenue and Logan Street from Texas Avenue to Kentucky Street.

“Another CycLOUvia is another reason to enjoy exercise, alternative transportation and community,” Fischer said. “I encourage neighbors along this route to bring their bicycles, skateboards and walking shoes to Goss and Logan streets, participate in this event and support local businesses.”

Goss Avenue and Logan Street from Texas Avenue to Kentucky Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 2-6 p.m. Many businesses along the corridor will be open and engaging participants, creating an atmosphere that is uniquely Louisville.

The return to Three Points marks the fourteenth CycLOUvia event, with other events taking place on Bardstown Road, West Broadway, and Frankfort Avenue.

CycLOUvia is Louisville’s opportunity to experience transportation in a unique atmosphere, by walking, cycling, skateboarding, or dancing in the street. Streets account for a massive amount of public land in all cities. CycLOUvia repurposes these public spaces by temporarily replacing traditional vehicular traffic with pedestrian traffic.

During CycLOUvia, streets become paved parks where people of all ages, abilities, and socio-economic backgrounds can come to improve their mental, physical, and emotional health.

Since 2012, CycLOUvia events have attracted tens of thousands of people to neighborhoods across the city. CycLOUvia promotes healthy lifestyles, alternative transportation, safety and economic development.
