Michael Carroll grew up in Leitchfield and weighed 325 pounds when he moved to Louisville to study engineering five years ago.
The Courier-Journal reports Carroll is part of the city's growing cycling movement as Louisville becomes increasingly bike friendly.
Rolf Eisinger is a Louisville Metro engineering technician who focuses on building the city's bicycling infrastructure.
He said many people want to bike, but they worry about safety. The city hopes to make those people who are on the fence more comfortable about biking through marked bike lanes and routes.
