B&O BICYCLE TOUR SPONSORED BY HENDRICKS REGIONAL HEALTH
We have a new date ~ September 19, 2020! The 28th Annual B&O Bicycle Tour will showcase portions of the B&O Trail as well as scenic countryside. You can choose from 12 -, 25-, 45- or 67-mile loops. After the ride, stick around for lunch and live music.
WHERE ~ Check back soon for more details on our exact starting venue in Brownsburg. We still have some logistics to work through but the new date has definitely been set.
Sign-in begins at 7:00 AM on Saturday, September 19, 2020. One key change is that there will be no mass start of riders at specified times. All riders can depart once they have completed their check-in, prepped their bikes and donned a helmet! Please note that our event is rain or shine. No refunds are given due to the weather.
WHAT’S FOR LUNCH
Listen to live music as you enjoy a fantastic BBQ lunch catered by Pit Stop Barbecue & Grill restaurant immediately after the ride. Finish off your lunch with a frozen treat from Schwan’s Frozen Foods, free to all participants. Thank you to Aqua Systems for donating water and Piazza Produce for the fruit.
ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS (SUBJECT TO CHANGE IF OUR VENUE CHANGES)
12 miles — Ideal for beginning cyclists and families: an easy-going, flat ride; you will “sprint” down the world famous drag strip. After exiting Lucas Oil Raceway, you will travel over five miles on the B&O Trail, taking in the murals in the Ronald Reagan Parkway tunnel and the bridge over White Lick Creek. After turning around at the CR 500E trailhead, it returns the same route. There is a refreshment stop at the Rotary shelter about halfway through the ride.
25 miles — After sprinting down the dragstrip and exiting Lucas Oil Raceway, you will ride over five miles on the B&O Trail, viewing the murals in the Ronald Reagan Parkway tunnel and the beautiful White Lick Creek bridge. You will then ride on county roads to the SAG stop at Maplewood. Enjoy refreshments and music before your return trip through the picturesque Hendricks County countryside. You re-enter the trail at the same spot you exited and return to Lucas Oil Raceway for lunch.
45 miles — This route starts out the same as the 25-miler. After leaving the Maplewood SAG stop, continue west through scenic farmland to the SAG stop at Perillo’s Pizzeria in North Salem. Your loop takes you back to the Maplewood SAG for a 2nd visit, then returns you to Lucas Oil Raceway for lunch via the B&O Trail.
67 miles — This route start out the same as the 25- and 45 milers. After the Maplewood SAG stop, continue west to the SAG stop at beautiful McCloud Park, provided by the Hendricks County Parks and Rec. You will encounter a few moderate hills near McCloud. Continue through rolling Putnam County countryside to Roachdale and an additional SAG stop at the Roachdale Town Park. On the return trip, there will be a SAG stop in North Salem at Perillo’s Pizzeria.
