2007 Thunder Over Louisville Bike Parking

by Jonathan Villines, Bike Louisville

On behalf of the Bike Louisville team, I want to thank everyone who used, and especially everyone who volunteered at, Thunder Over Louisville Valet Bicycle Parking this past Saturday. The event was by all accounts a huge success, with well over 550 people using the service. We managed to get every single bicycle back to its owner in less than 45 minutes after the end of the fireworks.

Based on this success, we plan to do more advertising and expand the service next year. This will mean we'll need even more volunteers, so please put next year's Thunder on your calendars! We couldn't possibly have handled as many bikes as we did without the dedication and hard work of our volunteer staff.

Next year, with adequate capacity, we can make a real dent in the number of cars gridlocked on the roads after the show. Thunder is many people's introduction to riding with traffic, and this year demonstrated that people are willing when adequate facilities are available.

Thanks again, everyone,
