2015 Horsey Hundred
Please plan to join us on Sunday, October 11 for a memorial ride and Ghost Bike dedication remembering and honoring Mark Hinkel.
Mark was participating in the 2015 Horsey Hundred and at mile 99 he was hit by a vehicle and died as a result of the injuries he sustained. The Bluegrass Cycling Club has been working with the city of Georgetown and Mark's Zombie Zone Cycling Team over the past several months to remember Mark through the installation of a Ghost Bike on Lemon's Mill Road. We will be dedicating the memorial and remembering Mark during the ceremony on Sunday.
The gathering point for the memorial ride will be at the Georgetown College Toyota Football Stadium located on Stadium Drive off of Lemon's Mill Road in Georgetown.
Time: Cyclists should plan to arrive between 12:00 - 12:30 pm the procession to the memorial site will leave the stadium at 12:45 pm.
The ride: The procession will have a police escort front and back. The Zombie Zone Cycling Team will lead the procession followed by other cyclists, followed by people attending the ceremony in cars. The memorial site is approximately 1 mile straight down Lemon's Mill Road from the gathering point. A portion of Lemon's Mill Road will be closed during the ride and ceremony. Following the ceremony, cyclists will ride back to the stadium, where maps and cue sheets will be available for those who would like to do a longer ride. These rides will be "all comers" rides and will not have designated ride leaders.
Restroom facilities will be available at the football stadium.
For additional information, please contact Pam Thomas at 859 312 6395.
This event will happen rain or shine.
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 Bill Cole at email@example.com and he will help connect you with a club member who can help you!
