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!!
