Bike: Horsey Hundred, Georgetown
May 23, 2015 - May 24, 2015
"The 38th annual Horsey Hundred will be held the weekend of May 23-24, 2015, in Georgetown, Kentucky. Won't you grab your bike and join us?
This year's Saturday Horsey Hundred route (102 miles) will be a scenic and challenging century ride past a beautiful covered bridge, popular bourbon distilleries, historic churches, famed horse farms, and even a castle. After departing Georgetown, riders will experience Kentucky's rolling countryside as they head towards Frankfort for a loop around our state Capitol. Then it is on to Versailles, KY (although we say it a little bit differently than they do in France) before turning north and working your way back to Georgetown. Don't forget to stop for an ice-cream float (but save some room for the awesome Kentucky style lunch that we have for you when you finish). Other supported distances include 25, 42, 62 and 82 mile routes that take you through breathtaking landscape that is just as beautiful as our century route.
On Sunday our routes head east into historic Bourbon Country (where famous beverage got its name) toward another section of the "Thoroughbred Capital of the World" Paris, Kentucky. No matter how your legs feel after Saturday's ride, we will have something for you on one of our 4 great routes. Choose from 25 mile (new), 34 mile, 54 mile and 77 mile routes. And when you make your way back to Georgetown, we will have lunch waiting for you.
All routes start and finish at Georgetown College. Recommended starting times between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. are listed on the route maps. The Horsey Hundred is not a race; it is an opportunity to share your cycling passion with the camaraderie of 2,000+ other participants in the Kentucky horse country setting. This is a tandem-friendly, family-friendly event that contatins rolling hills, well-maintained roads, the gorgeous scenery of Kentucky's rivers and Bluegrass in addition to memories guaranteed to last a lifetime."
