The 2017 Ride

Ride Options

New Routes + More Rest Stops + Panoramic Countryside = Great Memories

This year's Saturday Horsey Hundred route (102 miles) will be a scenic and challenging century ride past a beautiful covered bridge, popular bourbon distilleries, historic churches, famed horse farms, and even a castle. After departing Georgetown, riders will experience Kentucky's rolling countryside as they head towards Frankfort for a loop around our state Capitol. Then it is on to Versailles, KY (although we say it just a little bit differently than they do in France) before turning north and working your way back to Georgetown. Don't forget to stop for an ice-cream float (but save some room for the awesome lunch that we have for when you finish) at our last rest stop. Other supported distances include 25, 41, 62 and 82 mile routes that take you through breathtaking landscape that is just as beautiful as our century route.

This year our four Sunday route choices will be following a new course out of Georgetown before heading east into historic Bourbon County (namesake of our world famous spirit) toward another section of the “Thoroughbred Capital of the World” Paris, Kentucky. No matter how your legs feel after Saturday's ride, we will have something for you on one of our 4 great routes. Choose from 26 mile, 35 mile, 52 mile, and 75 mile routes. And when you make your way back to Georgetown, we will have lunch waiting for you.

All rides start and finish at Georgetown College on the circle off College Street. We recommended starting times between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. (listed on the route maps) based on which route you choose to ride. You can start earlier if needed. But remember, Rest Stops and SAG support will not be available if you are out on the road before 8:00 a.m. The Horsey Hundred is not a race; it is an opportunity to share your cycling passion with the camaraderie of 2,000+ other participants in the Kentucky horse country setting. Riders are expected to follow the rules of the road and traffic laws. This is a tandem-friendly, family-friendly event that contains rolling hills, well-maintained roads, the gorgeous scenery of Kentucky’s rivers and Bluegrass in addition to memories guaranteed to last a lifetime!

Again this year, the Horsey Hundred Team is pleased to provide access to interactive (GPS) maps for all Horsey Hundred routes. These maps will be available approximately 14 days before the event and will be available for download to your personal GPS unit. Keep in mind, however, that the Horsey Hundred is not responsible for any errors in the map program itself. While GPS maps are generally very reliable, you are cautioned to always follow the Horsey Hundred maps, cue sheets, and markings on the road. The road marking crew will be busy confirming that the routes are properly marked. Maps and cue sheets will be available for those who need them at packet pick up.
