What is Bike the Bluegrass?

Bike the Bluegrass is the 33rd annual American Lung Association cycling event in Kentucky.  Our rides raise funds to combat the ravages of lung disease.  Participants 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 Kentucky, enjoy the “Bites, Beer, and Bourbon Big Bash” cookout under the stars, and then spend the night in the rustic and charming accommodations at General Butler State Resort Park.

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. Since the event is on Saturday this year -- for the first time ever -- you'll have the flexibility to choose!

Also, General Butler has generously offered to honor our lodging discounts for any riders wishing to arrive on Friday and spend the night.  And, as a bonus, you won't have to wake up as early Saturday morning for the ride.

To make reservations for Friday night, call 502-732-4384 and reference Group Code 3206.

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 riders. 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, so go ahead, form a team and recruit friends to ride with you!


Schellers is offering some special discounts just for 2018 participants with discounts on bikes, service, and accessories. You must be registered to receive this discount.
