There are group rides every Monday through Thursday from late March through late October. The
regular daily group rides are described further down the page. The evening rides start at 6 PM during the summer and after Sept start getting earlier to finish before dark.
If the weather is nice there are often last minute rides on the week-ends throughout the year. Call BikeWorld, 270-442-0751, check our FaceBook page or see Chain Reaction Cycling Club for details.
Check this page often for updated listings of all types of cycling events in and around our area. Rides require, at minimum, an appropriate bike in good working order, water, and a helmet. We suggest a spare tube, energy food, maybe a little cash in case we stop, and your committment to ride as a safe, sane member of the group. As many rides are subject to weather, it's a good idea to also confirm dates, time and any specific requirements. We'll see you out there having fun!
