What’s New on the Road?
Monday was the first day since November that we could continue to expand our Urban Bike Network. Check out Louisville’s first Neighborway- It connects UofL to the Highlands: Proceed east on Cardinal Blvd, which bends and becomes Brandeis Ave. Turn 45 degrees right on Bradley Ave, then almost immediately left onto E Barbee Ave. After crossing Preston, bear right at the diverter to stay on the southern part of Barbee. Left onto Shelby St for a short way, then a 120 degree right onto Delor Ave, followed by an immediate left onto Hickory Street. Go in a straight line for eight (8) blessed blocks. Jink left onto Goss to continue straight onto Spratt for three blocks. At the five way intersection, take a slight right onto Ellison Ave. Ride that up the hill and Bam: you are at Barret Ave and in the Highlands. Learn more by clicking here.
