Rides and Events

Everyday Rides

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 5:30 until mid-April then are at 6 PM through the summer. By mid Sept riders start arriving at the start early 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.

Good information

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!
