On Saturday, August 11 bicycle enthusiasts from the Tri-State and beyond will be in Henderson, KY for the 9th Annual Pickin’ & Pedalin’ Bicycle Tour benefiting the American Red Cross. The Pickin' & Pedalin' Bicycle Tour is held in conjunction with the Bluegrass in the Park Folklife Festival.
The ride begins at On Deck in Henderson and features 12, 22, 40 and 65 mile routes. Bicycle riders will travel along beautiful, historic homes on Main Street to reach some of the flattest and best county roads a bicyclist could desire. Traffic is always light; however, all riders must always exercise caution. All rest stops along the scenic routes will feature bluegrass entertainment, refreshments, and restrooms.
“Every registration made for the Pickin’ and Pedalin’ Bike Tour will further the reach of Red Cross services in our community such as disaster relief, blood collection, CPR/First Aid classes, services to Armed Forces, preparedness and more,” said Malissa Troutman, Interim CEO, American Red Cross.
The cost of the Pickin’ and Pedalin’ Bicycle Tour is $30 per rider or $40 per family. There’s still time to register by visiting www.pickinandpedalin.com or calling 270-826-2775.
