3:30 PM 2mi #1 Mega-Cavern Lights Under Louisville Ride - 1840 Lincoln Ave., 40213
    The tradition continues! Saturday, December 9th, 2017, a 2 Mile Christmas Holiday Ride through the Mega Cavern Lights Under Louisville…with over 2 million points of light and 850 Christmas light displays. The terrain is mostly packed dirt so a mountain bike or wider tire type bike is advisable. Pump up the tires on your mountain bike or close the deal on the one you are wanting to buy and join us! To better be able to see the roadway, a front headlight is a very good idea. The cavern remains at about 62-65 degrees. The indoor Mega Bike Park closes at 4:00pm on Saturday, in case you were wondering about that. They will be providing to us a $5 discount coupon to use at a later time for activities they offer. We will meet at the German American Club parking lot located at 1840 Lincoln Ave., 40213 and take a short ride to the Mega-Caverns. We will have a sign in sheet and the cost is $6.00 per person, EXACT change would be very helpful. This is great fun! We are allowed to ride through before they are open to the general public. No cars, only bikes, how cool is that! Christmas cookies and hot chocolate after the ride…hope you can join us. The rain date will be the following Saturday, December 16, 2017...same time…same everything.
