Horsey Hundred Registration is Now Open!!!
We are SO EXCITED about what we have planned for the 2015 Horsey Hundred. We're making some changes, that we believe will make the event even better than it has been in the past and we're looking forward to sharing them with you! Use this link to go to the Horsey Hundred website so you can find out about what we have in store!!! Horsey Hundred
Consider being a volunteer - The Horsey Hundred is a labor-intensive endeavor. We are proud of the great service we are able to provide to the 2,000+ folks that join us over Memorial Day Weekend... and that great service wouldn't be possible without the 225+ volunteers who give up their time to help out sometime over the course of the weekend. Based on the feedback we get on surveys, it is primarily our fabulous volunteers who make our event special. Yes, they also mention the beautiful scenery ... but they go on and on about the hospitality and warm welcome they receive from the folks driving our SAG vehicles, working and registration, and especially the folks at the rest stops. Please consider joining our team of volunteers. If you have a creative idea for a rest stop that you are willing to implement, let us know! If you're a part of an organization or group that might want to volunteer together, let us know that too! You can register as a volunteer using the link above.
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!
