Ride Updates

    To those who are interested in riding this month’s populaire:


    The Bourbon Populaire will start at the Buffalo Trace Distillery Visitor’s Parking Lot. We are starting promptly at 10:00 (9:45 Wheelman Time), this is the same time that the Gift Shop opens, and arriving early may mean the gate is shut. The parking lot is also accessible through Fair Oaks Lane past the gas station. I should already be there.


    A few words about the route:


    Due to the course concentrating on visiting the distilleries, there is no food directly on the route-unless bourbon chocolates and bourbon jerky meet your dining requirements. There are however two places on the route where I have marked deviations to gas stations/McDonalds. The first is at mile 18.9, the second at mile 32, approximately half way. Deviations from the route do not count as mileage. All the distilleries should have water, if not at a water fountain, then at a sink.


    Secondly, there is one mile of gravel. It is rather fine gravel, well beaten down into the dirt. It could be muddy. You may wish to ride a bike that is not too precious to get dirty.


    Finally, the route visits both sides of the Kentucky River Valley, for those familiar with the topography. For those not, you may want to note that I used the word “topography” to give you an idea of what the roads might be like.


    Looking forward to seeing many of you come out.

    Since the ride schedule is published more frequently now but the  December schedule comes out later than previously, I wanted to get this out ahead of time.  Please don't be deceived by the dates on the scheduler.  Bethlehem will be on the 10th and the breakfast on the 3rd.  I will be adding a shorter version to the Bethlehem Century, but not to the breakfast century.  The shorter group will NOT be swept unless a volunteer steps up, but should stay with the century group at least into Bethlehem.

    *** NOTICE ***

    The Mammoth Cave Overnight Century Weekend is CANCELLED for this coming weekend (11/5 and 11/6), as a result of lack of interest by a sufficient number of riders to make the event feasible.  As of today, only two participants (other than me) have made reservations at the Mammoth Cave Hotel.  I've advised by the hotel that reservations may be cancelled with full refund to your credit card if you call no later than Wednesday, November 2nd.   Mammoth Cave Hotel (270-758-2225).

    The Mammoth Cave Overnight Century weekend is a great tradition and has been one of the better received rides on the schedule in years past, but this year I should have scheduled it earlier in the Fall, when we wouldn't have to start in the dark and when the weather would be more reliable.  The ride will be back on the Touring Schedule in 2012 for a date late in the Spring and/or early in the Fall.

    Thank you to all who have enjoyed this extraordinary weekend ride through central Kentucky in the past and I hope you join us again in 2012.

    I just talked with Joe Thomas. He asked that I let people know that the Yellow and Purple lot rides for tomorrow morning will start from the soccer field lot on Edith Street just off River Road.

    The ride schedule lists the Thursday evening Sawyer Park ride as a 15/30.  I am dropping the 30 because of the early sunset.
