As one of more than 2,500 cyclists on Central Kentucky roads over the glorious Memorial Day weekend, I thank the Bluegrass Cycling Club, its leadership and members, local law enforcement and volunteers for a safe, well-supported and executed series of bicycle rides, affectionately known as the Horsey Hundred (this is its 39th year).
The Herculean effort the club puts into making this event so spectacular is much appreciated. The logistics of coordinating a weekend of registrations, multiple rides, routes, guests, lodging, food, water, volunteers, law enforcement, entertainment, vendors and many things we probably do not see are truly humbling in their complexity, yet are pulled off yearly with seeming ease.
And, thank God, the weekend was a safe one, thanks to the extra efforts of law enforcers and volunteers.
The Bluegrass was showcased at its finest and much appreciated by folks from around the country and Canada who came here just to ride bicycles and marvel at this great “state park” we get to call home.
Never miss a local story.
