Show Notes The Louisville Cycling Podcast is dedicated to celebrating the people, rides, and events that make Louisville and the surrounding area a great place to be a cyclist! Today’s Episode The mission of the Louisville Sports Commission (LSC) is to promote active lifestyles and enhance economic vitality by attracting, creating, and hosting quality sporting events in the Louisville area. This will bring more inbound sports travel dollars to our community, enhance the quality of life, and brand Louisville as a great sports town.
