This is intended to be an easy ride. A few hills might be tougher for new riders, but the ride leader stays at the back and will go your pace. We can stop whenever necessary.
Join us for a leisurely ride along the Legacy Trail. We start at the trail head at the North Lexington YMCA, ride to the northern end of the trail at Ironworks, then return. Some riders may want to include an optional loop through the KY Horse Park, and perhaps visit the Man O’War memorial. This ride will be a casual pace for people to relax and socialize after a long work week, so feel free to bring whatever you feel like riding (hybrids, mountain bikes, single-speeds, etc.). This is an excellent time for brand new riders to try riding with a group!
Make sure you have a helmet, water, and a spare tube that fits your tires.
