Rides and Events

Everyday Rides

Covid-19 has thrown a wrench into our regular schedule. There are evening 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 from Mid-May thru Mid September.  In order to finish before dark, 5:30 PM from mid-April through early May and at 5:30 again in fall 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 safeguards currently in place you may 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. 

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.
