Champions Cycle Club. The Sept. 19th Champions Cycle Club Weekly Saturday Bicycle Ride will feature both a 13-mile route and a 9-mile route option. The ride will start at the Shadynook Store, located at 3043 Shadynook Pike, approximately four miles east of Cynthiana. This week's 13-mile ride will begin shortly after 10 a.m. on Saturday morning and motorists are urged to exercise extreme caution and watch for bicyclists in the area of the Shadynook Store as well as along the bike route that day. The 13-mile bike route begins at the store, which is located at the intersection of Shadynook Pike, Mudlick Road and Morning Glory Road, and proceeds down Morning Glory Road for 4.5 miles before the bicyclists turn left and ride north on Saltwell Brunker Road for approximately 2.5 miles until they reach Bobtown Road. Once the riders reach Bobtown Road, there will be a refreshment stop with ice cold Gatorade and water. The riders will turn right and ride 1.5 miles until they reach Mudlick Road. The riders will then turn left and ride 3.5 miles on Mudlick Road back to the Shadynook Store. The 9-mile route will also leave the Shadynook Store with all of the other riders at 10 a.m., but after riding down Morning Glory Road for 3.5 miles, any bicyclists wishing to take the shorter flatter route will turn left and ride north on Bobtown Road until they reach the refreshment stop. They will then proceed back to the store along the same route as the others. All teenagers (and younger riders if accompanied by an adult) and adults are invited to ride, both beginners and experienced bicyclists are encouraged to join us for this fun group ride. If needed, bicycles and helmets will be provided for all wishing to ride with the Club, but all riders must register with the Club prior to Friday evening, Sept. 18, by contacting Peter or Kim Newberry at 234-5285.
