LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Former Louisville Mayoral candidate and bicycling advocate Jackie Green has closed his original Bike Courier Shop.

Green is citing insufficient cycling in the city as a reason for closing his business on West Market Street.

The shop closed over the weekend and now the building is for sale.

Green has been operating three businesses since he lost the 2010 election.

He said the city should do more to calm traffic to help promote cycling and allay fears of people who are reluctant to ride in the streets.
