An athlete-specific lunch will be provided. Rest stops staffed by PK's Board of Director and friendly volunteers from throughout the community will provide snacks specifically geared for cyclists with the right blend of protein and carbs, such as peanut butter sandwiches, protein bars, gallons of water and Gatorade, and lots and lots of pickle juice!
Our signature Pedal tee-shirt will be available for purchase from our website if you missed the printing deadline.
The rides will be held rain or shine, and will only be cancelled if severe - such as lightening or tornado warnings.
All riders are expected to have bicycles in good condition, to obey all traffic laws, and to ride safely and intelligently. These are public roads, so cars will be sharing the route with us. Helmets must be worn on all rides and must meet Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), ASTM, or Snell standards. Safety lessons will be provided for all cyclists prior to the launch of the rides.
Fun and happy volunteers needed! Preservation Pedal relies on a large corp of volunteers to organize and implement it. If you're a family member or friend of a cyclist joining the ride, an aficionado of history and all things architecture, a student or civic group looking for community service hours or a person who just plain enjoys volunteering, we need you! Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of activities, including registration, rest stops, sponsorships and other event task. E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the PK offices today at 502-871-4570!
Preservation Pedal has a no refund policy. If you purchase T-shirts online, you can make arrangements to pick them up if you are unable to attend.
Please remember Preservation Pedal tours are NOT a race and should be ridden at a pace suitable for you. There is no such thing as too slow or too fast!
