I confirmed with the Augusta Ferry that they still allow bicyclists to cross the river. There is a chance (see following paragraph) that you could ride to Augusta, and need to return to Maysville via an out-and-back.
Due to the ferry crossing, the ride may be cancelled not only due to rain, but also due to high water, high winds, or mechanical problems when the ferry cannot run. I will call to check and post on the BCC Forum and Facebook after 8 AM after I call the ferry on the ride day.
I scheduled the start time for 10 AM. The park where we meet is 69 miles from Lexington which on average, takes 90 minutes to drive.
There are store stops available in small towns along the way.
Riders are encouraged to see the sights, particularly in
Augusta, Kentucky; Ripley, Ohio; and Maysville/Washington, Kentucky.
If there is an accident and you need either medical assistance or law enforcement, please dial 911 for emergency assistance. As soon as possible, notify me so I can complete an accident report for insurance.
