Welcome!

WalkBike Frankfort is dedicated to making the capital of Kentucky the best city in the Commonwealth for pedestrians and cyclists.


A bicycle-powered concert winds through the streets of Frankfort. Stuart Harrod, who runs WalkBike Frankfort's Folkbike reCyclery, carries local musician Jerry Katherine Howell on his electric-assist cargo bike.


Frankfort is a small city with a picturesque downtown core on a bow of the meandering Kentucky River. Big, beautiful green spaces are scattered through the city. It should be a great place to get around without a car. And, with work and planning, it will be. 

We envision a network of safe, attractive, and interconnected sidewalks, paths, and bike lanes connecting Frankfort's neighborhoods to parks, schools, shopping, and outlying areas. 

Goals

  • Make Frankfort a safe place for kids to walk or bike to school 
  • Make short walks and rides a normal part of everyday life in Frankfort: Walks to work... bike rides to the corner store... strolls down the street for lunch... rides to the local park... 
  • Make Frankfort a place that tourists want to see on foot or by bike

  • A list of specific short-term goals for 2013-2014 is available here.
