The charities we will be riding for include our four local NICA teams (youth mountain biking teams) located in Fayette County, Clark County, Madison County, and Woodford/Franklin Counties, Bluegrass AMBUCS - an organization that provides specially adapted bikes for kids who need them, and Broke Spoke, our local community bike shop. 

Education Session 9:00 -9:45 am - Please join us to hear Pam Thomas on Practical safety - tips for being safe while riding your bike in a group and by yourself.   In this session we will cover the ins and outs of riding in a group and why it matters.

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 and Broke Spoke  is $1,400 with $500 each for the NICA teams, assuming enough miles are logged by participants. Contributions will be made jointly by the BCC and West 6th.

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 18 points. 

Riders who have 12 or more points will receive a free jersey

Riders who have between 8 and 11 points will receive a $15 discount on purchasing a jersey.

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 2025!
