About This Activity

The Harvest Homecoming Bicycle Tour is one of the most picturesque rides offered to cyclists in Southern Indiana/Metro Louisville (KY). The tour winds along the top of the knobs of Southern Indiana with views of fall colors accenting the Ohio River Valley. This is a leisurely tour for beginner, intermediate, and advanced cyclists. The routes vary from gently rolling to hilly. Once you've ridden this ride, you'll want to return every year! 
Everyone who pre-registers will be eligible for our fantastic door prize drawing: a brand new Giant Escape Bicycle* provided by Clarksville Schwinn! Don't miss out - register today (winner need not be present to win). 
Exact model based on dealer availabilty. 
Grab a cup of Starlight Coffee Company then enjoy the fun and taste of Chris Cakes pancakes and sausage - served up (and up and up) hot off the griddle. For lunch, we'll serve fresh and hot Papa John's Pizza. And, when you consider our great SAG stops, you'll know that we ride to eat! 
Packet pickup and late registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. and each distance group will mass start around 9:30 a.m. Routes, SAG stops, and lunch will remain open until 4:00 p.m. Downloadable route maps are available from the event website.

Cycling helmets are mandatory for all participants! The foremost concern of the Harvest Homecoming Bicycle Tour is the safety of all participants. Please obey all traffic laws and respect the rights of motorists and fellow cyclists. All cyclists under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 
Riders in this year's Tour will again be able to purchase optional souvenir photos through Timbike2. What a great way to remember your day in the beautiful hills of Southern Indiana!
