Special Information and Activities for Tandem Riders

New for 2018- Tandem Hotel!

You spoke and we listened! Due to feedback from the 2017 questionnaires, we are continuing to make improvements in the tandem experience within the Horsey Hundred. In 2018, the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Georgetown will be the “Tandem Hotel” with a special negotiated rate of $129 with free breakfast and a room for social gatherings. Their regular rate for that weekend is $169 and they always sell out. Use this link to Book your group rate for Bluegrass Area Tandem. You can cancel up to 2 days before, so if you think you are coming, it would be good to grab a room. You can still stay in the dorms and come over for any events at the Fairfield.

The Fairfield Inn does allow storage of bicycles, even tandems, in your room. There is also bike storage near registration at Georgetown College.

The Friday tandem ride will be repeated in 2018 and we expect even larger crowds. Details about the ride will be posted as soon as they are finalized. Please note that due to the size of the group, we are not meeting in front of Darlin’ Jean’s as we did in 2017. We are exploring alternate start points such as a nearby distillery or larger park, so stay tuned.

We look forward to riding with you in 2018!

This is the first year we have designated a hotel as the “Tandem Hotel” during the Horsey Hundred. We are continuing to develop the “rally within the ride” concept for Horsey Hundred tandems. So far we have 56 tandem riders staying at the hotel. A tandem social is planned at the Fairfield Inn after the Friday tandem ride.

If you booked with a different rate, give them a call and they can book you with the group rate “Bluegrass Area Tandems”. Phone # for the Fairfield Inn 502-868-9955.
