Ride Description


Join us for a long weekend in the Bluegrass State for a tour of bucolic horse farms in Kentucky’s best-known ride, the Horsey 100, on Memorial Day weekend of May 2024.  The Horsey 100 brings in cyclists from all over the US and even some from the EU.  Held in the college town of Georgetown, KY. where there are three days of hub-and-spoke rides in the rolling hills of Woodford, Franklin, and Fayette counties.  Some of the routes will include passing by some famous bourbon distilleries in the area. 

Included in the tour cost is registration for the Horsey 100 ( ).  The Horsey 100 has a shorter route on Friday which usually starts and ends at the Kentucky Castle.  Saturday is the flagship day with five routes ranging from 25 miles to the iconic Century. On Sunday, you have your choice of four rides ranging from 25 to 75 miles. Doing all three rides qualifies you for their Trifecta Pin, and if you do the Century ride there is a special pin just for that ride.

On all riding days you will wind your way through and around the Bluegrass region and be treated to beautiful scenery, including horse farms, stone fences, rivers, streams, lush pastures, historic towns (Midway), and bourbon distilleries. The ride is fully supported with frequent rest stops featuring the right nutritional, as well as delicious, items chosen to fuel … (Join People Cycling to read more)

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.
