The Bourbon & Bluegrass Century, presented by Bicycle Owensboro will be August 1, 2020. Celebrating our fifth year, the ride benefits Dream Riders of Kentucky, Inc., a non-profit organization founded in 2003 that offers equine assisted activities and therapies to individuals of all ages who have special needs.
Along with the full and metric centuries, there is also available a 33-mile ride. Our rides offer a few rolling hills and many miles of flat, rural roads through scenic western Kentucky including spectacular views of the Ohio and Green Rivers. On Friday evening, join us for a mixer/packet pickup as well as distillery tours and bourbon tastings, if you wish, at O. Z. Tyler Distillery where the ride will begin and end on Saturday.
O. Z. Tyler (https://oztylerdistillery.com/) is continuing the tradition of distilling in Owensboro that began in 1885 and are proud members of the Kentucky Distiller's Association and a Heritage member of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. After the mixer, Owensboro has lots of entertainment on the waterfront which include Friday After 5 (a free, fun, family-friendly concert and street fair festival)
