Bike enthusiasts go underground

Ten stories underground in an old Louisville limestone cavern, hundreds of bikers will converge Monday on what is being billed as the only underground bike park in the world.

The Mega Underground Bike Park suggests advance reservations for the soft opening. The park's website says it is 320,000 square feet and has 45 trails.  Bike rentals will be available beginning in March or April.

Other features:

  • jump lines
  • pump tracks
  • dual slalom
  • BMX
  • cross country
  • single track

The bike park is just one of about a half  dozen attractions in the former limestone cavern. There are also zip lines, aerial ropes and challenge courses, a mega tram, and event space.
