Overall Difficulty:





Russell Cave is one of the best places to ride in the area.  The routes go through horse farms, beside streams and have some of the best rollers around.


Any A pace riders are welcome, but may not have a leader with the group.


A/B pace may or may not be swept or regrouped.


B/C and B paces are swept by ride leaders and  will regroup as needed.


A and A/B paces typically ride a pace-line, B groups may or may not, B/C does not.


Just a reminder that club pace guidelines should be followed. The ride leaders request that all riders select the appropriate groups to ride with based upon your fitness and ride desires for the evening.


Post ride festivities include a stop at one of the oldest country stores and Bluegrass Bike Partners in Kentucky, the famous Jot 'em Down store, home of the coldest beverages and best sandwiches in Fayette County.
