The Derby Festival's annual cycling experience, the PNC Tour de Lou, is a unique way to tour Louisville on two wheels
and celebrates its 10th year in 2023. The event has moved to a Sunday and cyclists will once again have the opportunity
to ride through the home of the Kentucky Derby. 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. Riders who
participate in the virtual option can still choose to complete the 20, 35 or 62.1 mile distance. Participants can ride
at their own pace, and even their own route, over multiple days.
The Horsey Hundred is the premier cycling event in Kentucky and the signature event of the Bluegrass Cycling Club.
We've come a long way since the inaugural Horsey Hundred was held at the Kentucky Horse Park (Lexington, KY) in 1978.
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.
An endorsement from Joe Gutmann:
"I have ridden it for 3 years and it is a good ride and value. Registration opens on February 1st
and it typically fills up in 2-3 days. If you have interest, please let me know."
SET AN ALARM FOR FEBRUARY 1st IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. THIS FILLS UP FAST!
Per Joe Gutmann: "Registration is now open for RAGBRAI 2024. RAGBRAI is July 20-27 (We leave on Friday. July 18th). We would love to have you join us. I have changed the Team Name to Southern Indiana Wheelmen (access code 1101. We were formerly known as the Gutmann Group). If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me."
The OKHT will again explore scenic Oldham County in 2024 with ride lengths of 62, 40 and 20 miles. OKHT has moved to a fall date this year, so the color is likely to be spectacular. The "World Famous
Cookie Stop" returns again. The 62-mile route includes parts of Louisville, and all 3 routes traverse the rolling
hills of Oldham County. Routes also visit historic LaGrange.
