B & O Bicycle Tour

This is a NEW venue in 2024. The 32nd Annual B&O Bicycle Tour will showcase portions of the B&O Trail including our newest section, Virgil Park as well as scenic countryside. You may choose from 11, 17, 25, 45 and 62-mile loops. After the ride, stick around for lunch and some live music.

WHERE ~ Cardinal Elementary, 3590 S Hornaday Rd, Brownsburg, IN 46112.

START TIME ~ Sign-in begins at 7:30 AM on Saturday, June 1, 2024. No mass start of riders is planned. All riders may 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 lunch catered by Smokin' J's Barbecue immediately after the ride. Once again this year, there will be a vegetarian option available! Thank you to Aqua Systems for donating water, Piazza Produce for the fruit, and Eby-Brown for the snacks at the SAG stops.

SEE YOURSELF ON INSTAGRAM ~ During the ride, take pictures and post them on Instagram using #bobikeride. We hope to show pictures on a continuous loop throughout the day back at the starting venue. You can enjoy them as you eat lunch and listen to the music.

ENTRY FEES ~ Winter discounts on registration fees are in effect through April 1st. Spring discounts are then in effect through May 1st. Winter discounts are a full $10 off of the normal registration rates and spring discounts are $5 off. As always, children 12 and under ride for free with lunch included! A lunch-only fee is available for non-riders for just $10. The regular fee for adults starts at $35 and then goes to $40 on April 1st and then $45 on May 1st. The regular fee for young adults (13-18 years old) starts at $25 and then goes to $30 on April 1st and then $35 on May 1st. Please note that same day registration fees will be higher.

DONATIONS ~ Consider giving a donation to the B&O Trail in addition to your ride entry fee or optionally cover the extra cost for the credit card processing fee. We are actively working to extend the trail to the east into Marion County in 2024. Local funds raised from generous folks like you enable this expansion along with ongoing trail maintenance. BOTA is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit, so your donations are tax deductible.

T-SHIRTS ~ Souvenir t-shirts are available to pre-registered riders for an extra cost. Scroll down to see what this year's graphic logo looks like. This year's shirt color is planned to be Navy Blue (subject to availability). The ability to purchase a t-shirt online will end at midnight on Sunday, May 26th. A very limited number of shirts will be available for purchase the day of the ride.

SPECIAL FEATURES OF RIDE ~ SAG vehicles will be roving the routes to assist with minor mechanical problems or fatigue. Routes are marked on the roads, but route maps are provided as a backup. Mechanics from Bicycle Garage Indy (BGI) will be on hand to answer mechanical questions and assist riders with pre-ride inspections. The first 300 riders to check-in will receive a souvenir water bottle. Riders will enjoy live music as they eat lunch from Smokin' J's Barbecue (10:30 AM to 3:00 PM). Lunch is included with your registration.
