The 2017 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, 64 and 81 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, 52 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. We recommended starting times 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!
