1345 Bardstown Road

Parkside Bikes opened its doors in June of 2009 as Louisville’s first used bicycle shop. The idea was simple, create a bike shop where quality bicycles were refurbished and sold at an affordable price. Ben wanted anyone to be able to walk into Parkside and ride a bike that would fit their riding style and budget.

1377 Bardstown Road

With Ben’s first child on the way and a desire to take Parkside to the next level he partnered up with his long time friend Jef Myers. The two spent the next several months on scaffolding creating what would soon be the new location for Parkside at 1377 Bardstown Road. With the move into a bigger location Parkside began selling new bikes as well.

2509 Grinstead Drive

With bikes and accessories covering nearly every inch of the Bardstown Road location Ben and Jef knew they needed more space if they wanted to grow. Jumping on the opportunity to open even closer to Cherokee Park, Parkside opened its second location at 2509 Grinstead Drive. With more space and its proximity to Cherokee Park and the Grinstead’s Greenway that puts you nearly downtown Parkside was able to to stock a rental fleet of road, mountain and lifestyle bikes.

Word on the street

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I have a vintage road bike - excellent bike, still in good shape. But as my hands have become vintage along with the bike, it was increasingly difficult to brake given the reach on the brakes.
