Rides and Events

Good information

This list of rides and events was developed before Covid-19 hit the country. Although the information was correct when posted, the pandemic has caused many changes. Organizers are postponing some events, changing the way they will be presented or, in some cases, canceling them altogether.  Each posting contains a contact email or phone number, and most have a website. We will make updates when we have them but it is your responsibility to confirm the details of any event listed. Watch our Facebook page too. Last minute information is often posted there.  Thank you.

BikeWorld 809 Joe Clifton Drive Paducah KY

The 2021 Dogwood Trail Bicycle Ride will take place Sunday, April 18th beginning at 2:30 PM from BikeWorld, 809 Joe Clifton Drive, Paducah. This leisurely pedal will takers riders east to Fountain Avenue then to neighborhoods in the city's west end before ending back at BikeWorld. The course is 11 miles with countless opportunities for riders to adjust the distance from a few blocks to a few miles to suit their wishes. The route is shared with motor vehicles (not closed to car traffic) but the streets are mostly low trafficked, many with sidewalks, marked and well signed with “Bike Route Today” notices. BikeWorld staff will ride the route on bikes to assist as needed. Should a rider encounter a mechanical or physical problem a driver in a truck will be on call to help. Masks covering the nose and mouth are required until riders are on the route and safely spaced out. Helmets are required for the duration. No entry fee.

From I-24: Take Exit 3. Turn East (toward Paducah). Go 1 mile to the building on the left. There is a choice for almost any rider who is on an adult sized bike. On the easiest ride, the leader rides with the slowest person and brings up the rear. Ride for 75 minutes.There is several other choices: Ride 20 miles at 14-16 mph or 20 miles at 16-18 mph; 30 miles at 16-18 mph, 30 miles at 18-20 mph too, and usually an EF group (extremely fast) Hang on if you can, and know the route because this group drops riders and does not usually stop to regroup.

Every Tuesday during daylight saving time

6 PM

2 Rides. The Cruiser Ride leaves from BikeWorld the first 3 or 4 Tuesdays of each month & the last Tuesday, leaves from McCracken County Library, 7th and Washington St. The Road Training Ride. Begins and ends at BikeWorld. The Cruiser Ride is the most laid-back, social, fun of the week and a great opportunity to have company when you tool around town, a perfect learning opportunity for someone just getting into bicycling or anyone who wants conversation and sightseeing. Sometimes in summer this ride even involves an ice cream stop! The Cruiser Rides calls for lights. The Road Ride usually offers about 25 miles (20 miles - 28 miles). Depending on whoever shows up, riders may elect to regroup, usually a good interval training ride for stronger riders but mostly averaging less than 20 mph.
