ABOUT THE TOUR
The Harvest Homecoming Bicycle Tour is one of the most picturesque rides offered to cyclists in Southern Indiana/Metro Louisville (KY). The tour winds along the top of the knobs of Southern Indiana with views of fall colors accenting the Ohio River Valley. This is a leisurely tour for beginner, intermediate, and advanced cyclists. The routes vary from gently rolling to hilly. Once you’ve ridden this ride, you’ll want to return every year!
Packet pickup and late registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. and each distance group will mass start around 9:30 a.m. Routes, SAG stops, and lunch will remain open until 4:00 p.m.
Cycling helmets are mandatory for all participants! The foremost concern of the Harvest Homecoming Bicycle Tour is the safety of all participants. Please obey all traffic laws and respect the rights of motorists and fellow cyclists. Should an emergency vehicle need to access the road you are on for an emergency run, please clear the road. All cyclists under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

We know it’s important to start your day off right so for breakfast, grab a cup of Bean Street Coffee and then enjoy the fun and taste of Chris Cakes pancakes and sausage – served up (and up and up) hot off the griddle. And, for lunch, you know we’re going to take care of you! (Stay tuned for details on an exciting new lunch option this year)! And, when you consider our great SAG stops, you’ll know that we ride to eat!

This hands-on advanced bodywork & stretching massage will be available before or after your ride. You won’t believe how much better you feel after this massage. And, yes, it’s free! (But, come on now, tips are appreciated!)
