Rides and Events

Everyday Rides

Covid-19 threw a wrench into our regular ride schedule. For years there have been evening group rides every Monday through Thursday from late March through late October, starting at 6 PM from Mid-May thru Mid September.  In order to finish before dark, they get earlier when days begin to get shorter. 
            If the weather is nice there are often last-minute rides on the weekends throughout the year.  With various pandemic changes you might want to call BikeWorld, 270-442-0751, check our
Facebook page, or see Chain Reaction Cycling Club for details before showing up for a ride expecting any fellow riders. 

Good information

Our list of rides and events is correct as of the time it is posted but things change sometimes. It is your responsibility to confirm the details of any event listed. Unless we don't have all the needed information, postings contain a contact email or phone number, and some have a website. We will make updates when we have them but watch our Facebook page too. Last minute information is often posted there.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
