Louisville's Fall Bike to Work Day is on September 30, 2011. This is an organized event to encourage commuting by bicycle around Louisville.
How Can I Participate?
You can join in the fun just by commuting by bike, or you can join one of three Meet and Ride groups at 7:00 AM Friday morning to ride downtown with other riders and a ride captain from the Louisville Bicycle Club. If you register for the Fall Bike to Work Day, you can enter to win a Trek 7000 commuting bike.
The Meet and Ride locations will have parking for those driving to the meet-up location. Riders must have a helmet.
