    Ride: Tour de Mad Dog Stage 4: Maple Syrup Century

    Starting Location: 200 Missouri Ave, Jeffersonville, IN 47130, USA

    Route Distance: 100 miles

    Elevation Gain: 2,672

    Route Description: Melissa (Puddle) Hall created this interesting route years ago - thanks Melissa! The naming of the route is unique because we make our way to a Maple Syrup Festival near Salem, Indiana.

    www.lmsugarbush.com - this is the 33rd year of the festival. There are food vendors at the festival so this serves as our lunch stop. This is in a rural area, bring cash in case technology is not having a good day. There is music and wild west, bank robber, shootout reenactments. there are three stops on this route including the festival.

    I will be the sweeper for the ride. Please wear hi-viz clothing and ride with a rear blinkey. If you normally only carry one spare tube, please carry two. Weather has been mild so far but it is winter. This area of Indiana uses cinders on the roads if it snows, be prepared. It is normally busy at the Festival - take your time and enjoy it.

    The first stop and last stop of the ride both utilize the Shell Station in Henryville. Our first stop is at 27.4 miles, the second is the Festival at 56 miles and the final stop is again in Henryville at mile 73. At least you will know where your favorite beverage and snack items are in the store.

    CAUTION: Cinders look like black sand, they are spread on the roads during winter. The car traffic tends to clear the cinders from off of the direct areas where the cars travel but this deposits them on the shoulders of the roads where cyclists ride. Stay out of the cinders as much as you can. They build up in a layer in many areas and this layer can become slick like sand or very fine gravel.

    CAUTION: DOWNHILL / DECENT into Leota at mile 60. This is a steep decent that requires caution even during the best of summer and it can be especially dangerous if there are cinders on the roads.

    The route shows 1% gravel on RWGPS, there are not any gravel sections.

    This is a charity ride that has a minimum fundraiser of $400. 

    Make sure you join our Louisville Bicycle Club Bike to Beat Cancer team HERE so we can show support for this great cause. 

    Route Distance: 15, 35, 65 or 100 miles

    Starting Location:  Norton Cancer Institute - Brownsboro - 4955 Norton Healthcare Blvd, Louisville, KY 40241

    Route Description: 

    Choose from 15, 35, 65 or 100 miles! We have an option to fit your activity level. To help you choose, think about it this way: A leisurely bike ride is about 10-15 miles per hour. Could you ride for one hour? Two hours? Three hours? More?

    Keep in mind that relief is only 15 miles away. Our pit stops are spaced about 15 miles apart, where you can park, stretch your legs, use the restroom and get something to eat or drink.

    Finally, remember you should enjoy yourself — but challenge yourself. You are doing this for those who cannot. You are taking on the challenge in solidarity with those who are fighting the biggest fight of their lives.

    Choose your distance

    Never cycled before? We recommend the 5-mile or 15-mile option.

    Cycled some, but it’s been a while? Try the 15- or 35-mile option. These are great distances for active beginners to novice riders.

    Frequent cycler? The 65-mile ride is for you. This longer distance can be rewarding for people who cycle regularly or enjoy fitness.

    Avid cyclist? Go for 100 miles and become a century rider! You won’t regret the feeling of accomplishment, knowing you are making a difference for children and adults fighting cancer in our community!

    Registration Fee: 5-mile rider registration is $10. 15-, 35-, 65-, and 100-mile rider registration is $50. Cancer survivors ride for free. Click here for more details on the minimum fundraising requirements.
