The PNC Kentucky Derby Festival Tour de Lou has become one of the Festival’s signature events every spring. As 2021 marks the eighth year for the event, the Derby Festival looks forward to offering participants the opportunity to ride in-person (socially distanced) or virtually. The Festival is again partnering with the Louisville Bicycle Club to produce this premiere ride, which features distance options for all experience levels. The in-person (socially distanced) ride will be an open course through some of Louisville's wonderful parks and neighborhoods. The virtual option is perfect for those who are out of town or prefer to ride solo on your own time and your own course. Distance options include:
20 miles - Great for Families & Beginner or New Riders (Open course, no streets closed.)
35 miles - Great for Moderate/Experienced Riders (Open course, no streets closed.)
62.1 miles - Great for Advanced Riders or those looking for a challenge (Open course, no streets closed.)
Whether you choose in-person or virtual, we hope you’ll ride with us in 2021!
