WHAT IS SAVORY CYCLE?

Savory Cycle is a bike ride that features unique pit stops at various restaurants and distilleries for you to eat and drink some of the best food in the region. Think of it as a progressive day of eating across the bluegrass.

There are two routes, a 25 mile ride to Woodford Reserve and back, and a metric century (62 miles). The Metric Century will also travel to Woodford Reserve, and will have two additional rest stops stocked with local healthy fare to fuel your ride. Have a friend that doesn’t want to ride? Worry not: There is a dinner-only ticket option for the finale, which will feature music, dinner, and good times.

Why? To celebrate the thriving local food and beverage culture in central Kentucky, to contribute to the vibrant cycling community, and to raise awareness aof nd money for Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop.

When? Sunday, September 24, 2017

Where? The ride begins and ends at Holly Hill Inn located in Midway, Kentucky

To Help You Remember Your Savory Cycle Experience - If you register before September 1, 2017 you will receive our commemorative Savory Cycle folding knife!

No-Sweat Route: Join your cyclist friends for dinner at Holly Hill Inn

Notes about Routes and Pace: The routes will be open to normal traffic. Maps and cue sheets will be provided and the course will be marked for easy navigation. Your pace is up to you. We encourage you to not make this a speed or “training” ride but to slow down, enjoy the beautiful bluegrass and your companions. However, we do ask that you be respectful and that you work to make each stop during the allotted window of time. If you get done a bit early, enjoy a West Sixth beer or some Woodford Reserve bourbon at Holly Hill Inn prior to dinner service. We think it will work best if you average 13 mph during the ride.

Route Support: Along the route at each stop we will have extra nutrition, water, general bike tools, pump, and emergency supplies such as suntan lotion, etc. Additionally, we will have a sag wagon (broomwagon) in case someone has difficulty with the distance, is too far behind, or has mechanical problems.

Rain Policy: Due to the nature of this event and the amount of preplanning, ordering food, and cooking, we are a 100% rain or shine ride. However, if the weather is not favorable on the day of the event, we encourage you to partner with other friends and carpool to each location. We will not be able to provide refunds due to weather.

Tours of Woodford Reserve - If you would like to take a tour of Woodford Reserve when you're there for lunch, pleas bring $14 with you to pay for your tour. You also may want to reserve a spot to make sure there is room for you! For more information about the distillery and tours, go here https://www.woodfordreserve.com/age
