So you want to ride BMX, but your skin turns to ash when exposed to the sun? In most places, you’d be out of luck. But in Kentucky, you can practice your moves in an extensive underground bike park.
Housed in an old limestone quarry 100 feet under Louisville, the Mega Underground Bike Park stays at a cool 60 degrees Fahrenheit all year long. The 325,000 square foot park contains singletrack and cross-county loop trails as well as jump lines and BMX features.
Passes to the park start at $24 (for a four-hour visit). Helmets are required, but helmets and bikes are available for rent. The bike park is just a component of Louisville’s famous Mega Cavern, which also houses a zipline tour, an adventure course, an event center, and several other attractions.
