Louisville Mayors labour day Subway freshfit hike/bike/paddle.

This is the free paddle that takes place at the waterfront and paddlers go through the locks and paddle out to the Indiana side with free Tarc shuttle ride back.

The start is at the waterfront, but you can park at the Louisville Community boathouse and paddle down. Just know that tarc will be shuttling back to the great lawn area. Just a short walk to the boathouse.
If you park at the waterfront, starting at 730am, there will be help getting your boat down to the water.

The event is 8am to 12. The paddle starts at 10am.
The locks close at 11:45. If you have never experienced locking through, its very cool. Not scary like the panama canal.
The police will be on sote in jetskis and boats for assistance.

PFDs are required and you have to wear them during this paddle.

Rentals are available contact:
Troy Eskridge/Louisville Kayak Company or for paddleboards Jennifer Oates/ Kentucky Paddleboarding.

The voyageur boats may have spots open on their boatsas well contact: River City Paddlesports/David Wicks.

*****if you get there early there are a lot of freebies (including another tshirt for your collections) and activities to do before the paddle***
