The 2020 Ride

Ride Options

Many Route Choices + Awesome Rest Stops + Panoramic Countryside = GREAT MEMORIES

Everyone who rode the Horsey Hundred in 2019 knows that it was the largest Horsey EVER! With warm weather and many new routes, approximately 3,000 cyclists enjoyed the smooth roads and beautiful scenery of the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky. Again for 2020, the five Saturday routes, including the epic Horsey Hundred Century route, will be going east from Georgetown, and Sunday's four routes, which generally reflect a shorter and more relaxed day in the saddle, will be going to the west. There are multiple routes for each day with lots of new roads, an amazing variety of scenery, and plenty of intriguing historic sites to explore!

Riders will depart Georgetown College on Saturday and after just a few urban miles will find themselves in beautiful farm country and heading east into historic Bourbon County (namesake of Kentucky's world-famous spirit). All of the routes go through or very near Paris, Kentucky, which is known as the “Thoroughbred Capital of the World.” The area is home to dozens of famed horse farms, including Claiborne Farm and Adena Springs. The 100 mile route will be a scenic and challenging century ride that includes a beautiful covered bridge, stone fences, a large commercial orchard, every type of working farm, and six of the seven rest stops are located at historic churches (one is nationally known Cane Ridge Meeting House). Other fully supported distances include 30, 50, 64 (The Metric) and 74 mile routes that take riders through the same type of rolling, breathtaking landscapes as the century route. No matter the route you choose, you can look forward to a hand-dipped ice cream float at the last rest stop before the short jaunt back into Georgetown (but save some room for the awesome lunch provided at the finish).

The Sunday route choices will generally follow shorter versions of those used on Saturdays prior to 2019. After departing Georgetown, you will tackle Kentucky's rolling countryside as you head west toward Frankfort. The longest (75 mile) route actually reaches Kentucky's Capital City, takes a loop around the Capitol Building, and then heads back through Millville, passing several working bourbon distilleries on the way. The shorter routes treat riders to charming small towns like Stamping Ground and Midway. No matter how your legs feel after Saturday's ride, there will be something for you on one of these great Sunday routes. Choose from 29, 41, 49, and 75 mile routes. And when you've made your way back to Georgetown, there will be a tasty lunch waiting for you.

All rides start and finish at Georgetown College on the circle off College Street. Recommended starting times are between 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., based on which route you choose to ride. You can start earlier, if needed, but please note -- Rest Stops and SAG support will likely not be available if you are on the road before 7:30! Riders are expected to follow the rules of the road and all traffic laws. And remember, the Horsey Hundred is not a race; it is an opportunity to share your cycling passion and the camaraderie of 2,500+ others in a unique Kentucky horse country setting. This is a family-friendly, tandem-friendly event that features rolling hills, well-maintained roads, and the gorgeous scenery of Kentucky’s streams, woodlands and Bluegrass farms. The memories you make here are guaranteed to last a lifetime!

Sunday's Routes & Rest Stops




Did you miss out last year?

Here's how it works:

Ride all 3 days and you have completed the trifecta and earned your pin.

  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 on every week. To preview the routes you can look under the heading “Friday Rides”. By clicking the link below you will find the list of available rides. On each ride link you will find the start location, start time, and route lengths. We’ve spaced the rides throughout the day to make it as convenient as possible for you to join in on the fun. Each ride will have route maps available at the start locations. So what are you waiting for? Come early and ride one of these routes to get your weekend rolling along. Please arrive at your chosen ride location 30 minutes early to allow for parking and signing the required sign in sheet. Make sure to pick up your Trifecta wrist band. Sign out when you complete your Friday ride and you have completed the Friday part of the Trifecta. You’ve taken the first step to earning your Horsey Trifecta Pin.
  2. Saturday: Ride like the wind. There are no route length requirements. Choose any distance you want. Ride your route at your pace and you’ve completed the second leg of the Trifecta. There are no ride sign in sheets, or check in requirements for Saturday. Hang on to that wrist band because you will need to show it when you check in on Sunday.
  3. Sunday: Ride that rented mule one last day. Ride the route of your choice, short or long, fast or slow, it is up to you. After your ride, stop in at the Kentucky Century Challenge/Trifecta table, show your wrist band, and check in on the Trifecta sheets. (If you are part of the Kentucky Challenge you must check in for that as well).
