The Bourbon & Bluegrass Century Ride is a charity event hosted annually by Bicycle Owensboro in support of Dream Riders of Kentucky; a nonprofit organization that provides equine assisted activities to individuals with disabilities. The Bourbon & Bluegrass Century Ride offers routes and distances for every level of rider from beginner to competitive cyclists. Route lengths include a full century (100 miles), metric century (62 miles), and a 33-mile route. Last year 550 cyclists participated in the ride; the youngest rider being 9 and the oldest being 82. Riders came from as close as Owensboro to as far away as Texas, Kansas, and Florida.
This year’s ride will take place on Saturday, August 3, 2019. The ride will begin and end at O.Z. Tyler Distillery, 10 Distillery Road on Saturday, August 3rd. Riders will be provided with a continental breakfast prior to the race and a post-ride lunch. On Friday evening, join everyone for a mixer/packet pickup as well as distillery tours and bourbon tastings at O. Z. Tyler Distillery. After the mixer, head downtown for lots of entertainment and fun things happening along the riverfront including Friday After 5! Where the week-end begins!
