    The Bluegrass Bicycle Homegrown Ride is a casual, 19 mile ride beginning and ending at St. Malachy Catholic Church in Brownsburg, IN.  The route will pass a number of produce stands along the route.  Stands may or may not be open depending on the time of day and weather, but feel free to bring some cash and a way to carry some fresh fruits and veggies just in case!  

    The ride pace will average 12-15 miles per hour with Ride Leaders riding as fast as the slowest rider in the group.  Ride participants are welcome to ride at a faster pace if desired.  We will re-group at several of the stands along the way.  THERE ARE NO DAN HENRY'S.  MAPS ARE PROVIDED.

    This is a beginner friendly, no drop ride.  New riders are encouraged to join us.  We will discuss the basics of riding in a group and offer safety tips for riding on the road.

    Start Location: St. Malachy Catholic Church, 9833 E. County Rd. 750 N., Brownsburg, IN  46112

    Winter is a terrible thing to waste! Join Danna Korak, Cheryl Sunman and Ian Seecof as they recap their recent bicycling adventure in sunny Southern Florida.
    The excitement begins with a spin around Shark Valley Trail in the Everglades and escalates into a self-contained tour that takes them from Florida City over the Card Sound Bridge, to the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail (FKOHT) that will soon stretch the entire length of the Florida Keys parallel to US Highway 1. From Key Largo to Key West, under brilliant blue skies, across a multitude of bridges and trails, spanning miles of sparkling blue/green waters, the scenery is breathtaking, the traffic is exhilarating, and seafood is fresh. 
    Bring lots of sunscreen and get ready for some real, up-close adventure! Learn how to prepare for the tour, pack your panniers, navigate the FKOHT, and cycle 300+ miles of paradise. You will be entertained, but more importantly, you will be prepared to do your own FKOHT tour.
