LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville mayor will continue a traditional event his predecessor started that draws hundreds of participants.
According to a press release, Mayor Craig Greenberg will continue Hike, Bike & Paddle with a few additions of his own.
In addition to the regular tai chi, yoga and Zumba, this year's event will also have cricket, pickleball and Pound and Hype. Vendors will also be present.
“The Mayor’s Hike, Bike & Paddle is a signature event each year in Louisville, and our administration is thrilled to host it for the first time in 2023,” Greenberg said. “This is an incredible opportunity to kick off the summer season for Louisvillians looking to get outdoors and explore the various trails and waterways in our amazing city.”
The hike is four miles with turnaround points, a 15.7-mile bike ride from the Waterfront to Iroquois Park and back, and a paddle going east along the river shoreline to the Beargrass Creek Pump Station and back.
When people return to the Great Lawn, Best Kept Secret will perform and food from Amiracle Ade Company, Ehrler’s Ice Cream and Red Top Hot Dogs will be available.
