The 31st Annual B&O Bicycle Tour will showcase portions of the B&O Trail including a newly paved section as well as scenic countryside. You can choose from 12-, 16-, 25-, 45- or 66-mile loops. After the ride, stick around for lunch and some live music.
COVID ~ The safety of riders and our volunteers is paramount. Our county health department does not require a COVID mitigation plan at this time. We encourage everyone to use common sense and to NOT attend if you are feeling sick or have been exposed to anybody who is. We are monitoring the state's COVID requirements and will implement a plan if required as the date of the event approaches.
WHAT'S FOR LUNCH ~ Listen to live music as you enjoy a fantastic lunch catered by Smokin' J's Barbecue immediately after the ride. Once again this year there will be a black bean veggie burger option! Thank you to Aqua Systems for donating water, Piazza Produce for the fruit, and Eby-Brown for the snacks at the SAG stops.
DONATIONS ~ Consider giving a donation to the B&O Trail in addition to your ride entry fee or optionally cover the extra cost for the credit card processing fee. We are actively working to extend the trail to both the east and west and received a major grant in 2021 from Indiana's Next Level Trails program. Local funds raised from generous folks like you enable expansion and ongoing maintenance of the trail. BOTA is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donations are tax deductible.
T-SHIRTS ~ Souvenir t-shirts are available to pre-registered riders for an extra cost. Scroll down to see what this year's graphic logo looks like. This year's shirt color is planned to be ____________ (subject to availability).Â The ability to purchase a t-shirt online will end at midnight on June 3rd. A very limited number of shirts will be available for purchase the day of the ride.
SPECIAL FEATURES OF RIDE ~ SAG vehicles will be roving the routes to assist with minor mechanical problems or fatigue. Â Routes are marked on the roads, but route maps are provided as a backup. Mechanics from Bicycle Garage Indy (BGI)Â will be on hand to answer mechanical questions and assist riders with pre-ride inspections. The first 300 riders to check-in will receive a souvenir water bottle. Riders will enjoy live music as they eat lunch from 'Smokin' J's Barbecue (10:30 AM to 3:00 PM). Lunch is included with registration.
