PNC Tour de Lou

The Kentucky Derby Festival is once again partnering with the Louisville Bicycle Club to produce the PNC Tour de Lou on Saturday, April 16, 2022.

Participants will have the opportunity to bike in-person and socially distanced, as well as the option to participate virtually. As always, the Festival’s annual bike event is for riders of all levels of experience, with separate distances and ride options:

  • 62.1 Mile Metric Century / Advanced Ride (Open course)
  • 35 Mile Experienced Ride / Intermediate Ride (Open course)
  • 20 Mile Ride / New to cycling (Open course)
  • Family Ride 1-3 mile options / Children and Families (for ages 4-12 years old)
  • Virtual Ride 20, 35, and Metric Century Options (Find more info here!)

While the 2022 In-Person rides will look a little different, the ride will still tour all areas of the city, from Downtown to the South End and Highlands.

Here’s what you can expect this year…

  • As in all Festival events, health & safety is our top priority, and we’ll continue to provide a secure biking experience.
    • Look for new highlights, like riding through Churchill Downs for 20 Mile, 35 Mile, and Metric Century routes.
    • Specific Course & route details to come in 2022.
    • This looped course at Waterfront Park will feature various distance options (1-3 miles) to be marked along the secured course.
    • Participants ages 4-12 years old, and their families are encouraged to come out to ride.
    • This course will include additional volunteer & safety support, as well as traditional support from Louisville Bike Club Ride Captains. 
    • Snacks and water will be provided along with some fun surprises and entertainment along the route.
    • The new course route will take Metric Century riders not only through Louisville’s parks and neighborhoods, and Churchill Downs, but also across the Big Four Bridge and into scenic Indiana.
    • Specific Course & route details to come in 2022!
