The Bourbon Burn, part bike tour, part bourbon festival is a three-day, fully-supported bicycle tour of the bourbon distilleries and Thoroughbred horse farms of central Kentucky. Explore quiet country roads and quaint communities en route to distilleries nestled amongst the rolling bluegrass hills. Daily distance options range from 20 - 100+ miles and stop at numerous distilleries big and small throughout the event.
Back at Bourbon Base Camp - located at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground in Lexington, KY - sip local bourbon from the same distilleries you biked to that day (plus others!) and enjoy live entertainment as you mix and mingle with friends, old and new. Registration is open to riders 21+ (by event date).
The Burn offers loops departing from the Bourbon Base Camp each morning. Decide each day just how much Burn you want to earn, with short, medium, or long options ranging from 20 - 100+ miles. The best part of a loop ride? You won't have to pack up your tent or check out of your hotel room all weekend!
In addition to a 3-day registration, we also offer a 2-day registration option for those who are not able to attend the full experience.
