Louisville cycling community rallies for Nathan Green after

3 min read

Nathan Green was knocked down late last month on a bike ride through Louisville. Now, the well-known local cyclist is working to get back up again.

Green is still recovering, friends in the city’s biking community say, after being seriously injured nearly a month ago in a hit-and-run crash along Poplar Level Road. The manager of Louisville’s Falls City Community BikeWorks cycling shop suffered significant brain injuries in the crash, according to Mary-Beth Peterson, which resulted in a nearly month-long coma and mounting medical bills.

Peterson, the mother of Green’s longtime girlfriend, said he had to “learn to walk again, sit up, eat, you name it” after waking up recently at University of Louisville Hospital, where he was taken after the crash on June 30. He’s now at the Frazier Rehabilitation Institute, she said, and faces a long road ahead.
