The Derby Festival’s annual cycling experience – the PNC Tour de Lou – is a unique way to tour Louisville on two wheels and celebrates its 10th year on Sunday, April 14th, 2024.
Location for Training Program
Waterfront Park Yellow Lot: 1401 River Rd, Louisville, KY 40206
The event has moved to a Sunday and cyclists will once again have the opportunity to ride through the home of the Kentucky Derby. In addition, the Metric Century course encompasses two states – Kentucky and Indiana. As always, the Festival’s annual bike event is for riders of all levels of experience, with separate distances and ride options:
62.1 Mile: Metric Century / Advanced Ride (Open course)
35-Mile: Experienced Ride / Intermediate Ride (Open course)
20-Mile: Ride / New to cycling (Open course)
Family Adventure Ride: Returns for the second year with a twist. Head to the Waterfront for a casual two-mile looped course featuring a scavenger hunt. The Family Adventure Ride is recommended for ages 14 and younger. (All children riders must be accompanied by an adult chaperone).
Virtual Ride 20, 35, and Metric Century Options (Find more info here!)
Starting times are staggered based on distance: Metric Century – 8 a.m., 35-mile ride – 8:15 a.m., 20-mile ride – 8:30 a.m., Family Adventure Ride – 9:30 a.m.
A virtual alternative is also available for those who prefer to log their miles on their own. Riders who participate in the virtual option can still choose to complete the 20-, 35- or 62.1-mile distance. Participants can ride at their own pace – and even their own route – over multiple days.
All participants in the 2024 PNC Tour de Lou will receive a ride shirt, swag bag, and an invitation to the post-ride party to celebrate.
Specific course and route details will be released in early 2024.
