Willkie Days Five in 50 Covered Bridge Ride

The fifth annual 'Five in 50' is a bicycle ride that goes through five rural Indiana towns, bucolic countryside, and five historic covered bridges in 50 miles (total distance is approximately 52 miles with the first 2 miles being part of a slower parade starting through downtown Rushville). Shorter 12 and 24 mile routes are also available.

The 'Five in 50' is NOT a timed race. However, we do have several 'Strava segments' that give riders the ability to compete against the clock and other riders.
2 mile - 'Sprint to Moscow'
2.9 mile - 'Sprint from Milroy'
4.1-mile - 'Sprint to Arlington'

Following the ride, participants vote for their favorite SAG stop. Old-school basketball rivalries die hard in these parts. Each town will be vying for your 'Best SAG' vote. Let them work for you and know that we think you are worth it. After your vote, you will be enjoying a local BLT sandwich with bacon from Gettinger Family Meats and Ice Cream from BRICS (Broad Ripple Ice Cream Station) in Indianapolis. You earned it!!
