What we're about

Calling all Cyclists. Join us as we leisurely ride through Louisville area and take in the unique sights that this historic town has to offer. Leave the rat race behind and bring the whole family. Remember...it’s about the journey, not the destination.

All ages are welcome and our pace will be conversationally casual. We will usually end our trip at a local cafe or restaurant for some food and fun conversation.

All riders are responsible for their own safety. The ride leaders are not professionals and are not responsible for riders’ safety.

In this time of Covid19, maintaining safe distance is requested.

Wednesday After Work for Beginning Riders

John Floyd Fields Community Center in Pope Lick Park

This will be a one hour easy ride on The Strand. We will start out riding south from Pope Lick Park for 30 minutes before returning back to Pope Lick. Everyone will likely be able to reach the The Strand Trailhead approximately 3.5 miles south of Pope Lick in 30 minutes from the first ride or within a couple of weeks. The ultimate goal for this ride will be to ride to the Turkey Run Trailhead and return in 60-90 minutes. Please arrive at the parking lot no later than 6pm to be ready to ride south by 6:15. Meet near the kiosk in the southeast corner of the parking lot before go time. In the event all or some participants are prepared to make the TRTH roundtrip and beyond at any ride, we can discuss accommodations to make the ride acceptable and challenging for all fitness levels. Please join us for an opportunity to meet some fellow cycling enthusiasts and a chance to enjoy the fresh air and beauty of The Parklands of Floyd’s Fork. Please come prepared to observe CDC rules for safe social distancing. You should have your bike, a helmet, a full drink bottle, and the repair kit you will need in the event you have a flat. It is possible that, even if you can call someone to rescue you, you may be as far as two miles from a place to meet them, and I maynot be able to make that walk with you. It is possible to fix a flat in much less time than it takes to walk that far. This is a great “how to” video for fixing a flat on most bikes: https://youtu.be/n4ZosNlofjc.

BIT OF ANCHORAGE AND HISTORIC PEWEE VALLEY

Sawyer Hayes Community Center

We will tour some quiet back streets of Anchorage before following Old Lagrange Road toward some time of historical reflection within a now peaceful Confederate cemetery in Pewee Valley. As we pass through downtown Pewee Valley, i will point out some of the historic hotspots. This is the land of the Little Colonel. The Little Colonel was written here by Annie Fellows Johnston. The movie starred Shirley Temple and Lionel Barrymore. It is also known as the location of the for the old Confederate Soldiers Home. We may conclude with a slight detour onto The Anchorage Trail ... before returning to Sawyer Hayes. Total distance = slightly over 20 miles. Expect a small amount of motor vehicle traffic. Afterwards we may pick a place for some social communion. Masks included.
