2021 Bike and Beers Series - The Most Fun on Two Wheels!

Licking Valley Century

June 26 2021
Alexandria, Kentucky, USA
The Licking Valley Century is the third ride of the five part Kentucky Challenge Series.
 
Enjoy the beauty and challenge of riding the ridge tops and valleys of Northern Kentucky. See for yourself why many cyclists call this area “God’s country”. You will enjoy beautiful valleys and amazing vistas while pedaling along roads with very little traffic. 
 
We have so many fun event features to announce! 
 
Friday early packet pickup will be hosted at New Riff Distillery in Newport, KY.  Our wonderful volunteers will be handing out nicely stuffed rider packets and ABCO safety will be providing cool Licking Valley Century drawstring bags to hold all your goodies.  While picking up your packet you will also be able to confirm your registration and instructions for the KY Challenge Series.  After packet pickup be sure to grab a glass of New Riff's top ten whisky and a bite to eat.
 
Saturday morning there will be a DJ playing in the morning to get everyone ready to roll and Resers Bike shop will be on hand to make sure your bike is tuned and ready.
 
Did someone say fresh baked treats? At the first rest stop in Butler, KY the MillStone Cafe will be serving fresh baked goodies to energize you and keep everyone rolling with a smile.
 
Beloved charity rides the Great Pumpkin Roll Ride and JDRF will be hosting themed rest stops in Lenoxburg and California, KY.  At the last rest stop, 12 Mile Creek Winery is hosting the rest stop AND the famous Kona Ice Truck will be serving cold treats to help everyone cool down and cruise to the finish line.  
 
At the finish line there will be a DJ to keep things fun and post ride massages available for purchase.  Make sure to check in at the KY Century Challenge table and record your mileage to get credit towards the 2021 challenge.   
 
Four Mile Pig will be serving up tasty post ride meals that are included in your registration and Alexandria Brewing Company will have their beer truck at the finish line and offering nice cold brews for purchase and 12 Mile Creek Winery will be hosting tastings and have wine for sale.
 
If you have never been on these roads before you are in for a real treat.  
 
Register early!  There is a rider limit and we do expect the ride to sell out.
