GEORGETOWN, KY – Georgetown College is pleased to again serve as base site for the 36th annual Horsey Hundred, May 24-26, sponsored by Bluegrass Cycling Club.
Cyclists from all across the United States and Canada – as many as 1,500 – will headquarter in Georgetown to enjoy the beauty of springtime in the Bluegrass. Organizers promise the traditional Saturday Century route through both challenging and beautiful rolling Kentucky terrain.
Collectible pins will be given to those daring enough to ride the Century, climbing to the historic Jack Jouett House (“The Paul Revere of the South”) in Versailles, Kentucky. Other Saturday route options are 26, 35, 53, and 75 mile rides.
Sunday ride options include a 30 mile loop, a 50 miler that features a roll through the streets of Paris . . . Kentucky, or a 70-miler through the heart of the Bluegrass.
The Horsey Hundred is not a race; it is an opportunity for riders to share their cycling passion with the camaraderie of others in Kentucky horse country. This is a tandem friendly event with rolling hills and well maintained roads.
Online registration is $65 (by May 22). On-site registration is $90.
Many cyclists will reside on Georgetown College’s campus and be hosted by the College’s Summer Programs and Camps team.
