Yours, watching the Steamboat Race on the Ohio River from the Big Four Pedestrian Bridge in Louisville Kentucky during the Kentucky Derby Festival. Tattoo was finished a few hours prior.

Nice short jaunt along the river today. There are so many odd things in this area if you just slow down to look at them, like a random circle of stones and a tiny Noah’s Ark. WTF?
Local louisville shop, Parkside Bikes, is killing it with their Brooks selection these days! Sure, you can still special order Brooks items from most of the local shops, and Clarksville Schwinn has a good amount of saddles in stock, even some of the old out of production stuff… but Parkside has got it going on! They’ve even got a dog!
Check out Parkside on Facebook, here!
The Big 4 bridge, although not exactly complete, opened today in Louisville Kentucky. Photos from Jenny Morse.
Tomorrow, Thursday Feb 7 2013, the Big 4 Bridge is open although incomplete. The bridge, as seen in the top photo taken around July 6, 2001 was a rail bridge crossing the Ohio River between Louisville Kentucky and Jeffersonville Indiana.
The bottom photo is much newer and it’s not a pedestrian bridge connecting the same areas. Or it WILL connect the same areas in the summer when the Southern Indiana portion of the ramp is complete! It will connect Louisville’s Waterfront Park area to a small park area being developed in Jeffersonville Indiana.
The ramps are really awesome and have neat multicolored changing lights on them. The bridge has safety rails, lights and benches. I’m looking forward to riding to the opening tomorrow and checking it out! This will make my commute to work infinitely more safe as opposed to crossing the four lane Clark Memorial, or 2nd Street, bridge.
