DID YOU KNOW
The city of Louisville’s new bike share program, LouVelo, has 305 bicycles located at 27 stations, several near the Belknap and Health Sciences Center campuses. Most of the bikes – 300 – are brightly painted in aqua blue and neon green, but five of them are red. Those are a nod to the red bike stolen from a young Cassius Clay that prompted him to search for a police officer in what would become a life-changing visit to a boxing gym. More information about the program is available online.
