The Bike Trek to Shaker Village is a 31-year-old American Lung Association tradition; a fundraiser aimed at combatting the ravages of lung disease. Trekkers have a heart for that mission first and foremost!
The event is amazing, too. It has been updated and refreshed to appeal to a broad cross-section of cyclists. If you’re looking for a great ride with an incomparable experience at the end, look no further. Ride through the rolling hills of Central Kentucky, enjoy the “Bites, Beer, and Bourbon Big Bash” cookout under the stars, and then spend the night in gorgeous, historic Shaker Village. If you prefer a multiple-day event, you may even choose to arrive a day early or stay a day later on your own and ride with friends.
If your schedule is too busy to accommodate the full experience, we’d love to have you just ride and stay for dinner, or ride only. If you’re an extreme cyclist looking for a ride that will test your grit, try the “Hillacious Hundred.” With 100 miles and a 4,600-foot elevation gain, this ride will definitely take your breath away. No worries if that route isn’t for you. Choose either the 64-mile Metric Century (approximately 2,780-foot elevation gain) or the 32-mile intermediate route (approximately 1,140-foot elevation gain).
The bottom line is that no matter how you choose to participate, we have a plan sure to please!
We’ve even created a special surprise for the team that recruits the most NEW Trekkers.. Did we say “team?” You can surely register as an individual, but we’ve found being part of a team maximizes the FUN in fundraising to beat lung disease … because, at the end of the day, Trekkers ride to save lives.
