After a year’s hiatus, this annual favorite is back – and better than ever!
Sunrise Bakery and Easy Rider Cycling are teaming up and turning on the country charm to bring you a fun, and fully supported, version of our favorite ride.
- At a maximum of 100miles (one way), this ride can be as challenging or relaxed as you like. It’s high on indulgence, low on stress, and can be as long or as short as you like thanks to the SAG support from the Easy Rider Adventure Wagon. Aiming to hang in there till Berea? Cut out to London at Lake Linville? We can make it happen.
- From start to finish, we have your back; mechanicals, wrong turns, Sword hydration refills, snacks, too tired to continue, we’ll be close by with the Easy Rider van and another support vehicle to meet your needs.
- Tickets are $100. 20% of your ticket goes to Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop. We have always been excited to promote cycling in Lexington. That’s why we are dedicated to supporting Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop in their efforts to provide better access to better bicycles for all people and to empower individuals to perform their own bicycle maintenance.
Sunday Morning: The ride rolls out from Lexington at 7am. Parking will be along the street across from 256 Clay Avenue, which is directly across from Woodland Park.
The ride begins with a visit to Sunrise Bakery to fuel up with pastries and coffee. Then down to the Valley View Ferry and onward to Richmond for stop number one.
We will take lunch in Berea, with some time to stroll around shops before pushing on. As we roll into Lake Linville, the roads get narrower, more scenic, and more challenging.
At this point it’s time to soak in the atmosphere as you pedal through the wooded back roads at your own pace. You’ll enjoy the rolling meadows, and the occasional hilltop outlook.
We’ll end the ride by passing through the Daniel Boone National Forest, before arriving at our remote, private camp site on the edge of the Daniel Boone National Forest.
You’ve had a long day on the bike, but we’ll make the rest easy. Satisfy your hunger with a hot, home cooked country dinner around the camp fire. With hot showers available, and your gear delivered to your campsite, you can relax with friends, listen to the creek burbling bye, and to the sounds of the woods.
Wake up Sunday morning to hot coffee, Sunrise Bakery Pastries, and a country breakfast. From here you can choose to take the early shuttle back to Lexington, or enjoy the forest and take the mid-morning shuttle, or take on the challenge of riding home, with SAG support just a phone call away.
