London Backpack Offroad Cycling Tour
Saturday, September 16, 2017, 8:00 AM
Intersection of Line Creek Road and Cold Hill Road
Summer Weekend Ride
On Saturday, September 16th, London Kentucky will host a one-day offroad bicycle tour in the beautiful Daniel Boone National Forest. This bike tour will be complete with well stocked rest stops, SAG support and an after-ride meal. There will be several distances to choose from, ranging from 11 miles to 46 miles. The Backpack Offroad Cycling Tour is a fundraiser for The Backpack Club Inc., which is a non-profit charity that is dedicated to feeding the children of Laurel County.
BCC Sign in sheets will be at the check in table and will be available between 7:30 and noon. We will need a minimum of 6 members to sign up to get mileage credit.
The trails are non-technical and most are rolling hills, and are packed gravel (numerous areas of loose gravel) US Forest Service roads, which are perfect for mountain bikes, cycle-cross bikes and gravel bikes. Over 95% of this tour will be deep within the National Forest.
Restroom facilities are available at the starting location
Ride will be held rain or shine, and will be swept by the organizers.
