Overall Difficulty:
For those not participating in the Hub City Tour or the MKT Trail, consider riding the Slainte Century.

This route takes us into Stamping Ground around Skull Buster and down into Midway back into Georgetown.  These roads were either on last year's Horsey Hundred route or years past.  There are climbs that will get you off your saddle and a few strenuous rollers to go along with them, but it will all be worth it when you get to the top!!

Details:
Slainte Public House will be open for bathroom access and to fill the water bottles.
There will be two store stops, first one is in Stamping Ground and the second one is just off the route in Midway.

Upon our completion, I am inviting you to one of our newest Bluegrass Bike Partners, Slainte Public House.
If you were lucky enough to stop by there during the Horsey Hundred, you will know they were a HUGE HIT with the visiting Cyclists.  With a beautiful patio and great music, what is there not to love??!!
There will be a food truck (Unknown at this time) and nearby Fava's (YUM!!!) also delivers to refill your thousands of calories burned in the saddle.  Of course, plenty of drinks to choose from.
