For 2023, Race Day Events is returning the fall Barley's ride to Labor Day weekend, and also returning to the original event name of Barley's Cycling Classic. As in the previous versions of BCC, the routes will head east to great roads in Knox and Jefferson Counties, and will offer four spectacular route options of 33, 53, 64, and 80 miles.
All routes are very well marked and fully supported by multiple RDE and local bike shop sag vehicles and motorcycles, and feature fully stocked rest stops approximately every 15 miles. Mass start at 8:00am
Course Maps can be found at Ride with GPS! https://ridewithgps.com/auto_approve/Event/198043/EjU7Y9UA3UUCsTxD
Barley's Cycling Classic, like all RDE bike events, is NOT a race! Ride swag is highlighted by a soft cotton BCC logo shirt, along with ride logo pint glasses to the first 250 registered. Post ride menu of pizza from Barley's, and beer provided by Sierra Nevada. Expected participation–250
