THE CHALLENGE IS ON!!
The Kentucky Cycling Challenge 2020 is going to happen. It will start with the Rock the Crater on August 15th, followed by the Limestone Cycling Tour on September 12th and closed out on October 10th with the rescheduled Redbud Ride. Although our plans are solidly in place, as we all have discovered in this year of unpredictability, we cannot guarantee the 100% chance of completion of the KCC. However, we believe that holding a three ride KCC in 2020 is going to happen.
We have been working with local health departments and are preparing to make the rides as safe as possible, from Covid-19, by following precautions needed and prescribed by the local health departments in conjunction with each ride's sponsoring organization. There will be guidelines given for your protection by each ride.
Due to all the changes in the economy and having fewer sponsored rides, our sponsorship funding is down which may limit the KCC awards to just a jersey. If the completion rate and final sponsorship monies allow, we will be giving larger rewards to the CENTURY RIDERS that ride 300 miles and attend all three rides first, then secondly give an extra reward to the METRIC RIDERS that complete all three rides with at least 185 miles. The third category of participants will need to ride all three rides with a minimum of 35 miles per ride and a total of 120 compiled miles to complete and get the KCC jersey. No matter the final outcome of rewards, everyone will be able to purchase the matching bibs at cost (currently under $40).
If you have pre-existing conditions and are considered in an at-risk category, please contact the KCC (at email@example.com) and we will see if we can arrange for a substitute ride for your safety.
Lastly, if you are registered for the KCC and know you are not going to ride this year, please contact us so we can remove your registration and make room for someone else.
