Due to the construction on I-75 at Clays Ferry, diverted traffic coming down Athens-Boonesborough Road to Hall's has necessitated a change in starting location. We will park on the shoulder outside of the perimeter fence at the old power plant at Ford, KY. We have been granted permission to park there, but we cannot block any gates or entrances to the now vacant property. We'll ride out to the end of the route and then back, riding back towards Hall's a bit to try to get our full mileage before returning to the start point.
Anyone traveling to the ride from Lexington needs to plan for heavier than normal traffic on the backroads and consider that I-75 may be backed up.
RIDERS SHALL NOT COME TO A RIDE IF THEY DO NOT FEEL GOOD, HAVE BEEN RUNNING
A TEMPERATURE, OR HAVE AN ACTIVE CASE OF COVID-19
Riders must maintain current social distancing guidelines - 6 feet apart - before, during and after the rides. Groups are limited to no more than 8-10 individuals. If there are more than
8-10 in a pace group, the group must split, with start times staggered by 5 minutes.
Masks are required before and after the ride where social distancing is difficult to maintain, per state guidelines. Masks will not be required
during the ride since wearing a mask adds stress to the respiratory system. However, the choice is up to the individual rider on whether to wear a mask
during the ride.
