Annual BCC Tour De Pancake Ride!
On 27 July 2014, join the BCC Social Committee and Dwayne and Ana Edwards for the Tour De Pancake.
Through the power of imagination we will convert central Kentucky into the epic majestic views of France. You will swear you are pushing through the Pyrenees Mountains and riding over the cobbles of Roubaix.
We will offer four options a grueling 50 mile slog that would challenge "LeMond"; a 30 mile jaunt fit for "Major Taylor;" a 20 mile route packed with breakaways, and a dapper 12 mile route will be the escapade of the day.
The 50 mile route at will start at 9:00 am, the 30 mile route at 9:30 am, the 20 mile route at 9:45 and the 12 mile route 10:00 am.
Your start point will be at the beautiful Casa De Edwards located at 244 Meadow Valley Road in the Masterson Station sub-division.
The BCC will again be providing pancakes and such prepared by Madame Ana Edwards and her able assistant Tim Terry. We ask that all members bring a side dish to share. Non members are welcome but we are requesting a $5.00 donation that will be used for the clubs philanthropy efforts.
After the ride please plan on hanging around to watch the end of the tour as your favorite professional riders and teams enter Paris to conclude the second leg of the “Grand Tour.”
We are looking for sweepers for the 30, 20 and 12 mile route, please contact Dwayne if you are interested.
Please RSVP at 859-797-2913 or email@example.com.
