    In the same way that riding a bike to work requires an understanding of traffic signals and regulations, urban paddling comes with its own special set of considerations.

    Boat traffic Visibility Navigational Markers-location of sailing line/Barge Channel Paddlers should stay together in areas trafficked by boats barge ettiquette

    A Barge, as the name implies, has no etiquette.Traveling both upstream and downstream between 15-25 MPH, a barge cannot make sudden stops. Urban paddlers are familiar with the location of commercial shipping channels.

    You can download a copy of Ohio River Navigation Charts to locate the sailing line or commercial shipping lane of Louisville area (river miles 591 to river mile 605) http://louisvillerowingclub.org/OhioRiverNavigationCharts.pdf?from=recentsearch
