Three Days of Rides

2024 Routes

The Horsey Hundred features a full array of routes for every skill level, from rolling 26 miles to a challenging century. You will ride through picturesque, rolling, central Kentucky horse farm country and see stone fences, small towns, and plenty of horses. We have rest stops every 15-25 miles for Saturday and Sunday Routes.

Where

Saturday and Sunday routes start at Charles Brooking Park, near the two blue buildings on Fairgrounds Road.

Friday Rides will start from King’s Way Church

Friday Tandem Rides will start from the Legacy Trail Horse Park Trailhead at 1PM.

Maps and road markings

All routes are marked with color-coded arrows (as shown in the descriptions below) and supplementary signs. The Ride With GPS mobile app provides a comprehensive way to navigate the routes and other services. We also provide printed maps and cue sheets at the event check-in area.

Starting Times 

The Horsey Hundred does not have an official starting time. You can start whenever you like, but we strongly suggest you consider starting at a time listed on the schedule to ensure SAG and rest stop availability.

  Route previews are available while details are still being finalized. GPX links and downloads will be provided prior to the start of the event.

Reviews

Always a professional event. My favorite of the Kentucky Challenge. Looking forward to next year. Could you hold two per year?

Beautiful countryside, low traffic, courteous drivers, friendly participants, excellent volunteers, many ride options. Our favorite of all rides!

All the volunteers I encountered were friendly and helpful and did a terrific job!  Route selection was excellent with great road markings. Rest stops were well placed and filled with great snacks.

Very well organized. Great support with sag vehicles clearly, frequently visible. Great volunteers, so friendly and helpful. Great group of riders, friendly and nice. This is my 4th time and I’ll be back. I rode by myself as all my friend riders had to bail for various reasons. I am glad I came and rode. Beautiful country, great support, and enthusiastic riders.
