On Saturday, June 22, 2013, Kentucky will have a chance to celebrate the bicycle!
The "Retro Bicycle Ride" will follow the Wheelman's "Official High Wheel Tour & Official Antique Safety Tour" with a police escorted motorcade leaving from Cochran Elementary School, traveling north on 2nd Street to the Yellow Parking Lot at Louisville's Waterfront Park.
Approximately 75 high wheel bicycles will lead the parade, the biggest of its kind in Louisville since 1897. This cycle carnival of 2013 will be followed by a demonstration by riders on antique bicycles at the park before returning to the University of Louisville for a group photograph of antique bicycles.
Bicyclists of all types are invited to join in this parade to the river. Dust off your oldest bike and put together a retro look. Costumes and decorated bikes of any kind are encouraged, along with any other form of merrymaking you can come up with!
