This inaugural cycling event starts in Rushville and includes 12-mile, 24-mile and 50-mile routes. The 50-mile route will take bicycle riders through five historic covered bridges and five additional Rush County towns (Arlington, Homer, Gowdy, Moscow and Milroy). The ride will showcase the beauty of Rush County and its historic covered bridges.” All proceeds will go to local Rush County charities.
The ride is planned to start at the beginning of the Willkie Days Parade. Rest, support and gear (SAG) stops will be located in each town on the 50-mile route as well as at each covered bridge. Following the ride, participants and guests are invited to attend the “Live at the Levee” free concert at the Rushville Amphitheater featuring John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band.
Community members are invited to cheer on riders throughout the course, and riders will have the opportunity to vote on the town that demonstrates the best of Rush County hospitality after the ride.
