    I have had a couple of requests for the GPS file and a few questions about the century.   Here is the route:  Hardinsburg Century

    .  I "think" the GPS file is accurate, but if you want to be 100 per cent certain, let me know and I will send you the cue sheet and you can plot it yourself.


    It is a nice ride with some climbs, one of which is fairly challenging.  Most of the ride is normally fairly low traffic.  As usual, you may run into dogs, obstacles, road closures, Amish buggies, occasional gravel, etc.   Seems like there is road construction everywhere this summer. Be prepared for the unexpected.  It is what makes rides memorable.  And as always, ride with some common sense. 


    Lunch is at the Mennonite Store.  Good sandwiches.  Usually not much of a wait, but hey, as soon as I say that it will be an extremely long wait.  Little Twirl should also be open though I have not eaten there for what seems eons.  I do have a vivid memory of Lucky, finger on top of his head, doing ballerina twirls in the parking lot of Little Twirl and of sitting and eating an ice cream cone the size of my head with Diesel Dog another ride;-)  Good times.


    This is NOT the ride with the killer steep hill that I have been known to call Betting Hill.  Yes, the hill is on the route, but we go down it, not up it on this century.  Of course, if you are masochistic and really are driven to do hill repeats, I will wait for you until I stop laughing.


    Let me know if you have any other questions.  Puddle

    My 40 mile ride from Graceland Baptist Church (near New Albany) tomorrow morning is ON.  Please check "ride updates" early in the morning.  If it's raining the ride will more than likely be cancelled.  PLEASE NOTE this ride does not have a store stop.  Please bring power bar or whatever which can be eaten at the turn around point in Deam Lake Park.

    Ride is moved EARLIER to 7:00am start, wheels roll at 7:15am.  Be prepared for heat, humidity, and hills! This is definitely NOT a flat stage, and you should be prepared for lots of rollers.

    If you're coming to the LBC Summer Picnic and SWAP Meet tomorrow at YEW DELL BOTANICAL GARDENS, there is another traffic situation to be aware of.  US 22 is closed between Springdale Church and The Woods of St. Thomas subdivision.  Coming from Louisville, the route to YEW DELL that we can be sure is clear;

    I-71 North to EXIT 17, then take 146 West toward Crestwood.  At the first traffic light in Crestwood (at McDonalds) turn left onto 329 and then left on Old Lagrange Road, just after the overpass.  YEW DELL is .5 mile on the right.  Check the LBC Ride & Event Schedule for a complete timeline of events; www.louisvillebicycleclub.org  

    If you've got some bicycle stuff to sell or trade, bring it to THE SWAP MEET!

    Don't forget to bring a side dish or dessert to share!  We'll have fried chicken, soft drinks and water, plates, napkins and utensils!  

    See you tomorrow at YEW DELL BOTANICAL GARDENS, 6220 Old Lagrange Road, Crestwood, KY 40014!
