Registration is not Required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
The Bluegrass Cycling Club and West 6th have agreed to co-sponsor Pedaling for a Purpose again for 2021.  The charities we will be riding for include the Fayette and Clark County NICA teams (youth mountain biking teams that are just getting started in Central Kentucky) and Bluegrass AMBUCS - an organization that provides specially adapted bikes for kids who need them. 

This special session will be at West 6th Farm, located on Shadrick Ferry Road in Franklin County. It's a bit hillier riding from the farm, and there will be no Novice Ride.

Education Session 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

This session will be outside, and may be at a location a bit away from the tap area so please check back here for specific location information. 
The education session will feature a different speaker each session. Check a week before each scheduled event for information about the presentation.

Group Rides Begin at 2 pm
We will have group rides on the surrounding roads with leaders, but if you're a mountain biker and would rather do that, feel free to bring your mountain bike and hit the trails - you can still sign in and have your miles count toward our charity total!

Ride posting will be updated the week before with specific route links and ride leaders


We will offer group rides at the following paces/distances:

C pace 
B/C pace
B pace
Slower A/B pace
Faster A/B pace
A pace


Restrooms are available on site - Education sessions will be held regardless of weather - Rides may be cancelled or rescheduled if there are severe weather issues.  Check the BCC forum and FaceBook for updates.

 

Program Purposes:

  • To provide educational opportunities for people wanting to learn more about bikes and cycling
  • To provide an opportunity for anyone who wants to ride a bike, whether with a group or not, to meet and mingle
  • To support health and fitness related charitable organizations
  • To mix and expand the various cycling communities that exist in our area
  • To provide incentives for people to ride their bikes
  • To introduce cycling to new populations

Each mile ridden during pedaling for a purpose will result in $0.40 for the charity of the day.  The maximum contribution, to be made jointly by the  BCC and West 6th, is $1,300 for each charity

 

Rider Rewards Part:

Riders will receive rewards at the end of the program based on participation points.
