Overall Difficulty:

Information about the overall difficulty of this Nic Vegas Ride can be  found closer to ride time on the BCC Facebook page or by contacting Libby.  

The Nic Vegas Rides throughout the year will offer a slew of routes on a variety of less traveled roads. The terrain and elevation may be considered challenging by some, but promises loads of fun and awesome training. The routes for the A and AB will usually be more difficult than the routes for other paces for these rides.  All paces (mph) are based upon effort and terrain and will generally be a bit lower in relation to other rides of similar distances.  Paces may be slower for all groups, but smiles will hopefully be overflowing!

 

Details:

We hope you will join us to celebrate Danny Barnes, Gayle Tomkinson, Bruce Edelen, Gary, Rogers, and Steve Harp in Nic Vegas with bike riding and cake! Woo-hoo! Plus, we plan on enjoying food and merriment at the Euro Wine and Tapas Bar after the ride.

Moreover, we hope you will join us to make new friends, ride with old friends, explore southern Jessamine County, and more in Nic Vegas on WEDNESDAYS THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF JUNE!  We would love your company.  A restroom, water, snacks, and drinks will be available before and after the ride in the back of T.A.J.S.

We will meet at the back of The Alternative Jewelry Shop at 118 ½ North Main Street, Nicholasville, Kentucky.  Please park in the public parking lot directly beside the building which houses T.A.J.S.  Announcements will commence at 5:55 PM and we plan to roll at 6:00 PM.
