LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Thousands of people hit the Louisville waterfront on Monday to get fit as part of the 10th annual mayor's Hike, Bike and Paddle event.  

The event got underway at 8 a.m. with a 5K run, and then it was on to pickle ball, yoga a tai chi. People took to the water in canoes and to the streets on foot and on bikes.

The event is a chance to get fit, and it's been growing every year.

"This is all part of the mayor's Healthy Hometown initiative," said Amanda Lambert of Mayor Greg Fischer's office. "It's all about getting out, get moving, enjoying the sights and views of Louisville."

"There's just thousands of people that come on out. It's amazing," said cyclist Cliff Breehl. "When you hit a hill, you can see everybody in front of you and behind you. It's just a mass of people with bikes."

Everyone who participated in the Hike, Bike and Paddle received free admission to the Reggae Festival at the Water Tower.
