RAM Cycling is very pleased to announce the details of our 3rd annual Oktoberfest ride. This has been a great group ride the past two years and this year shouldn’t be any different. Our friends that have been awesome enough to grace us with their presence in the past can attest that this ride is fun, friendly, and full of fellowship.

 

Please note, the event has moved to Frankfort this year. The start/stop point for Oktoberfest this year is at the Capitol Annex building, please park in the lot on the right side (behind the floral clock). The official address is 702 Capitol Ave. Frankfort, KY 40601. Restroom is available across the street at Masher’s house. The ride is scheduled to roll at 11:00am (weather permitting), so please plan to arrive and be ready to ride at 11. ¬†We will keep our fingers crossed that the weather is nice, however if it turns out to be wet, we will announce a make up date on the morning of the ride which will be Sunday October 30!

 

Keeping in tradition, we will have our friendly segment challenges along this group ride. This is a tempo pace ride and we do not drop anyone! The segment challenges include 3 sprints and 3 climbs and points are awarded to the top 3 in each segment. We will regroup immediately after each segment race and the average rolling pace has been about 17 mph I the past. The route this year is a little shorter (42 miles) but has plenty of scenic views. There are stores to stop for refuel/restroom at miles 12 and 34, and a stroll through Buffalo Trace Distillery (a National Historic Landmark) at the 34 mile mark. Anyone wanting to make a purchase at the gift shop, I will have my sons bring your souvenir back for you. Also, keeping in tradition, there will be bourbon awarded to the segment winners and we will have refreshments and beverages for all at the completion of the ride. Please let us know if you can attend!

The route is posted publicly on our Strava club page. Feel free to invite any cycling friends that you think would enjoy this ride, all are welcome. Maps will not be handed out because this is a group ride, we do not drop anyone and I want to make sure I don’t get dropped, LOL! The route is mostly back roads, but we will be in the downtown streets some too, however there’s very little Sunday traffic in downtown Frankfort. I think there’s only 3 hills and everything else is rolling (as long as you keep your wheels rolling). Hope to see you there!
