World’s First Underground Bike Park Opens


The world’s only subterranean bike park, located in a former limestone mine 100 feet below Louisville, Kentucky, opened for business on Monday. The Louisville Mega Cavern offers mountain bikers 320,000 square feet of trails, which include singletrack and jumps made of BMX track dirt.

As reported in the February 2015 issue of Outside, the Mega Cavern fits into a growing trend of creating indoor bike parks in urban areas and is the largest indoor park to date. “It’s about three times the size of anything that’s indoors right now,” Joe Prisel, one of the park’s designers, told Outside. “It’s more than an indoor jump park. It’s an indoor trail system.”

The park will expand in two upcoming phases, eventually adding a kids’ section, gravity trails, and a large jump room, Prisel says.

Visitors can purchase an all-day pass for $40 or a four-hour pass for $24. It currently operates under a “bring your own bike” policy, but rentals will be available in March or April, according to Mega Cavern’s website.
