In addition, the Metric Century course encompasses two states, Kentucky and Indiana. A virtual alternative is also available for those who prefer to log their miles on their own.

The Horsey Hundred is the premier cycling event in Kentucky and the signature event of the Bluegrass Cycling Club.

The first event featured 50-mile routes on Saturday and Sunday with an optional Century ride on Saturday. No records exist of how many participated the first year, but the next year (1979) had 65 participants. The event now hosts some 3,000 riders.
