West 6th Brewery and the BCC

Invite You To Join Us For Our Final Pedaling for a Purpose for 2022, along with the BCC semi-annual club meeting

 

We will offer traditional BCC group rides for all paces, with ride leaders, but you can also come, sign in, do your own thing, and have your miles count for our charity of the day.

The charities we will be riding for include three of our local NICA teams (youth mountain biking teams that are just getting started in Central Kentucky), Bluegrass AMBUCS - an organization that provides specially adapted bikes for kids who need them, and Broke Spoke, our local community bike shop. 

The BCC semi-annual club meeting will be held beginning at 9:00 am followed by group rides beginning at 10:00 am.  

We will have jersey fit kits available for people to try.

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

The Bike Part:

Rides start 1 hour after the education sessions begin and will feature various distances, experience levels, and paces.  There will also be an option for people to come, sign in, and do an urban ride or ride on their own. 

 

The Charity Part:

The maximum contribution to AMBUCS, Broke Spoke and the NICA teams, assuming enough miles are logged by participants, to be made jointly by the BCC and West 6th, is $1,400 for each group.


Rider Rewards Part:

Riders will receive rewards at the end of the program based on participation points.  1 point will be awarded for each education session attended and 1 point for each ride attended for a total possible point total of 20 points. 


Riders who have 15 or more points will receive a free jersey

Riders who have between 10 and 14 points will receive a free tee shirt

However a participant must have at least 2 points from both rides and education sessions (in other words, to earn a jersey or tee shirt, a participant must attend at least some of both)

There will be a party, celebration, jersey/tee shirt distribution and charity recognition/check delivery event in January of 2023!!!
