Overall Difficulty:

easy to moderate



This is a series of six rides around the western portion of the central Kentucky area.  They are scheduled for March 31 through the end of May.  They are between 20 and 33 miles long, and involve a variety of terrain, some relatively easy and some difficult. 

I sweep at a B/C pace.  Faster riders are welcome but will be without a separate ride leader.  If you want to ride at a slower pace, contact me at least a day before the ride, and I will see what I can arrange to accommodate you.


I will post the routes on the calendar entries before the ride, hopefully at least a week out.  I will rate them as compared to the Masterson 21-mile route (with that being easy to moderate).   I will also post the distance, the total feet of climbing, and the average feet of climbing per mile.


B/C Ramblers note:  Some of these are rides you do regularly, some are places only the faster paces get to often.
