Lexington Bikers Urged to Try Cycling to Work

May 20, 2016


There is an effort in Lexington to increase bike traffic to and from the workplace.  It’s right in line with today’s ‘National Bike to Work Day’ observance.

Information from the American Community Survey in 20-14 showed just over 1 percent of Lexington residents biked to work.

Officials are finalizing details for a 30 year master plan for the Breaks Interstate Park. The 4,800 acre park, dubbed 'the Grand Canyon of the South,' is situated on the Kentucky-Virginia border. 

Park Superintendent Austin Bradley says over the years, the Bluegrass side of the Breaks has seen little development. He says the new master plan calls for major improvements on the Kentucky side. "We're looking at everything from primitive camping opportunities in Potters Flat to equestrian and riverside like Kayak canoeing campsites," said Bradley.
