Underground Bike Park to Open Below Louisville, Kentucky
Over 45 bike trails are slated to open up 100 feet (30 meters) below the city of Louisville, Kentucky in early February 2015.
Part of Louisville Mega Cavern, the Mega Underground Bike Park will feature a range of trails for all ages including Jump Lines, Pump Tracks, Dual Slalom, BMX, Cross Country and Single Track.
The 320,000 square foot (7.3 acre) bike park, constructed in a 27 kilometer (17 mile) long former limestone quarry beneath the Louisville Zoo, is the latest in a series of underground attractions which include zip-lines, an aerial ropes challenge course, a historic tram tour and even an underground drive through Christmas light show.
Although touted as the only underground bike park in the world, its visitors definitely won’t have the distinction of being the first subterranean cyclists.
When the park initially opens visitors will need to bring they own bike, however bike rental will eventually available in March or April 2015.
