After my last post, early on a Sunday morning, Tim contacted me – interested in checking out the Parklands. This is a new metro-area park on the extreme east end of the city. There’s the paved Louisville Loop portion and a few off-road trails.
I grabbed my Fargo – for good off-road ability, and rode over to Tim’s house.
Connectivity to the Parklands for central Louisville is sketchy by bike. We loaded bikes onto his car and headed out.
It was a nice day. There were a lot of people out enjoying the park. We went to the unfinished portions of the Loop, and rode through waist-high grass. We eventually turned around and went the other way. We checked out what few mountain bike trails we could find. Only one was quite good (and challenging).
I didn’t take any pictures worth sharing. Tim took quite a few.
It’s not a park I’ll visit very often, but I can see the appeal for the riders who don’t want to deal with traffic – especially if they live in the east end.
After a good morning of riding, we finished up with a beer. It wasn’t a bad way to spend a Sunday.
