2015 Horsey Hundred Launch Party
Tuesday, January 13, 6 – 8pm
West Sixth Brewing
Ready, Set, Roll! Believe it or not we’re almost ready to open online registration for the 2015 Horsey Hundred. Yes, online registration will open on January 15. Time flies when you ride bikes! As a way to help build excitement about the event – 2015 will be Horsey Hundred number 38 – plans are underway for the first-ever Horsey Hundred Launch Party to be held two days before registration opens at West Sixth Brewing in Lexington. As a way to recognize all the support from officials from all the Bluegrass communities and counties we roll through, we are inviting mayors and tourism officials from around the region to join us, as well as others who support the BCC with this world-class, completely volunteer-managed cycling event. There will be some pretty great giveaways and refreshments provided by the BCC. And of course, for those who wish to imbibe, our friends at West Sixth will have some great beers options on tap which you can purchase. SO PLAN TO JOIN US! TUESDAY, JANUARY 13th, 6 – 8pm. We’re gonna launch! Only five months to go...

Tips About Riding With The Bluegrass Cycling Club
We are happy that so many new members have joined our club this year!! We encourage everyone to take a few minutes to review our ride guidelines, which can be accessed by clicking on the button below. It is very important for all riders to take the time to review ride descriptions, and to honestly assess whether you have the experience and fitness to successfully participate in the ride as described. Our goal is for everyone to be safe and have fun on our rides, and this works best when everyone attends rides that are suitable for them.
If you are unsure whether a ride is appropriate for you PLEASE give the ride leader a call before the ride and he or she will be happy to advise you. It is ALWAYS better to ask in advance!
If you are brand new to cycling, please take a bit of time to learn how your bike works - how your gears shift, how your brakes work, and how to stop and start before joining a group ride. We can help you develop group riding skills, and become a better and stronger rider, but you need to have a basic understanding of how your bike works first. If you need assistance in learning the basics about your bike, contact our Education Committee chairperson Pam Thomas at email@example.com and she will help connect you with a club member who can help you!
