10th Annual Wheels & Wings Registration
This is a RIDE, not a RACE!
You don’t have to be a big-time cyclist to take a day and enjoy the beauty of Ballard County. This year, we’re offering a three routes – 20, 30, and 60 miles, and free wings for riders in LaCenter Park!
Family-friendly! Children 12 and under ride for free with a registered adult. And everyone will enjoy the vendor fair, activities, and free wings for riders in LaCenter Park!
Required: All riders must wear helmets and obey traffic laws.
Support: Each route will have rest areas with food, drink and toilets (one on the 20-mile route, approximately every 12-15 miles on the longer routes). Drivers in follow vehicles will rotate through the routes to assist in case of mechanical difficulties, offering emergency food or drink and to pick up any rider looking for a rescue. Routes are clearly marked with arrows painted on the pavement. Each rider also receives a route map. Rest areas and follow vehicles are available until 2 p.m. Riders chose the pace and route best suited to their abilities. It’s a mass start.
Routes: The tour starts at the LaCenter City Park. For links to complete route maps, visit us on Facebook at Ballard County Wheels and Wings, or check Map My Ride, under Ballard County Board of Education. There are green fields and pastures, small lakes, and some of the largest cypress tree stands in Western Kentucky. With luck, you might even see one of our bald eagles! The 20- and 30-mile routes are mostly flat. Even beginners can complete them. The 60-mile route is more challenging, with a series of rolling hills in the first 20 miles.
Address: The park is across from the First Baptist Church, located at 421 Broadway, LaCenter, KY, 42053. Registration will open at 7 AM on Saturday.
