The 2018 Ride

Ride Options

Multiple Routes + Awesome Rest Stops + Panoramic Countryside = Great Memories

This year's Saturday Horsey Hundred route (100 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 toward Frankfort for a loop around our state Capitol. Then it is on to Versailles, KY (although we say it just 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 at our last rest stop (but save some room for the awesome lunch that we have for when you finish). Other supported distances include 25, 42, a metric century (61) and 83 mile routes that take you through breathtaking landscape that is just as beautiful as our century route.

This year our Sunday route choices will be following a new course out of Georgetown before heading east into historic Bourbon County (namesake of our world famous spirit) 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 four great routes. Choose from 25 mile, 37 mile, 53 mile, and 73 mile routes. And when you make your way back to Georgetown, we will have lunch waiting for you.

All rides start and finish at Georgetown College on the circle off College Street. Recommended earliest starting times are between 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. (listed on the route maps) based on which route you choose to ride. You can start earlier if needed. But please remember, Rest Stops and SAG support will not be available if you are out on the road before 7:30 a.m. 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 our unique Kentucky horse country setting. Riders are expected to follow the rules of the road and traffic laws. This is a tandem-friendly, family-friendly event that features rolling hills, well-maintained roads, the gorgeous scenery of Kentucky’s rivers and Bluegrass farms. The memories you make are guaranteed to last a lifetime!

Horsey Hundred Trifecta

This year, we are introducing a new program for our Horsey Hundred participants, the “Horsey Hundred Trifecta.”

Here’s how it works:

1. Friday: Come loosen up your legs for the weekend and join us for one of our FREE Friday club rides. These rides take you on some of the beautiful country roads that members of the Bluegrass Cycling Club ride every week. The routes can be found on the Horsey Hundred website under “Optional Friday Rides” listed below. The start times are spaced throughout the day, to make it as convenient as possible for visitors to join us. Each route will have maps available at the start locations. Ride one of these routes with us (and be sure to sign in on the club’s ride sheets) to complete the Friday part of the Trifecta. You’ve taken the first step to earning your Horsey Trifecta Pin.

2. Saturday: Ride the Horsey Hundred. There are no route requirements; choose any distance you want. After your ride, stop in at the Kentucky Century Challenge table, check in on the Trifecta List, and record your miles. (Please remember if you are part of the Kentucky Century Challenge or the Kentucky Challenge you must check in for that as well.)

3. Sunday: Ride the Horsey Hundred. Again, ride the route of your choice. After your ride, stop in at the Kentucky Century Challenge table, check in on the Trifecta List, and record your miles. (Again, if you are part of the Kentucky Challenge you must check in for that as well.)

TRIFECTA!

Once you’ve been verified on the Trifecta List, you will receive this year’s Horsey Trifecta pin. It’s a small way for us to acknowledge riders that arrive early and stay to ride through Sunday.

We are limiting the pin to the first 300 riders that check in on Sunday.

The Horsey Hundred Trifecta check-in will be at the Kentucky Century Challenge table.
