Old Kentucky Home Bicycle Tour (OKHT)

Join the Louisville Bicycle Club for the 43rd Old Kentucky Home Bicycle Tour on Saturday, June 17th, 2023

After a very successful 42nd Old Kentucky Home Bicycle Tour in Oldham County we have decided to return. This year's ride will start at Yew Dell Botanical Gardens and you will ride through historic Oldham County and for the 62.1 mile riders through parts of Louisville Kentucky.

The 43rd OKHT will have four routes. A 62.1 (100k), a 50-mile, 40-mile and a 20-mile option. We will have four SAG stops including the World Famous Homemade Cookie stop at Acorn Lane Farm. The route includes beautiful rolling hills, a few challenging ones as you ride through a variety of horse farms. We have additional rest stops at Circle Bar C Ranch, The Hermitage and Chestnut Hall Racehorse Sanctuary. You will ride through historic downtown La Grange that was featured on HGTV's Home Town Kickstart television show.

We will have club rides Friday, Sunday and Monday to complete your weekend. Oldham Tourism has a tour planned for Sunday that includes bourbon, horses, trains and a wonderful lunch at One Nineteen West Main. Tour Oldham County  The Hermitage is open on Sunday for tours, as is Chestnut Hall (reservations required).

Kentuckians share a rich cultural history that doesn't confine itself to just one community. Eyes moisten all over the state when we hear that sad old refrain from the classic Stephen Foster ballad. We're just sharing another beautiful region of our Old Kentucky Home.
