Last Chance To Tee Up For OKHT!
A Ride That Is Way Above Par!

Don't Miss This Year's Old Kentucky Home Tour!

by Team OKHT

The 2000 OKHT is upon us and this year's ride is spectacular! Team OKHT has spent the entire year planning this event and with the support of many volunteers and the generous contributions of our sponsors, it is certain to be the area's premier cycling event.

  • Be entertained to Bardstown and Back by the "Just For Fun" quartet, by the Harmonics of Louisville, Jimmy Buffet (okay, so I heard he was coming, but I just can't seem to get confirmation), Dr. Hemiola & the Blues Activators, John Gage, Molly Freibert and her hammered dulcimer, bagpipes and music at every sag stop along the route.
  • At the Bardstown High School, let students and staff of the Louisville School of Massage relieves a little soreness in those overworked muscles. They will be on hand from 2:00 - 6:00pm and will be giving complimentary massage to registered riders.
  • Drop your bike off with the Bike Detail Guy and for a small fee the technicians there will clean and shine your bike, enough to impress any rider on the Sunday return route.
  • Buy LOTS of raffle tickets for the 2001 LeMond Tourmalet road bike. Donated by Scheller's Fitness & Cycling, this beautiful bike retails for over a thousand dollars and could be yours for $1. (If you win.) Tickets are $1, 6 for $5 with 100% of the proceeds to benefit the Brain Injury Association of Kentucky.
  • Watch as the Louisville Bicycle Club presents the Brain Injury Association of Kentucky with a generous check to support their many worthy activities.
  • Take a narrated carriage ride around Bardstown, courtesy of Millenium Sport and Import.
  • Test ride one of Scheller's demo bikes, watch the children's Bike Rodeo, listen to speeches, lay in the grass, attend the Bourbon Tasting, treat yourself to an Olive Garden dinner in the school cafeteria, make new friends.
  • Attend the Polar / Carmichael seminar after dinner Saturday night sponsored by Polar Heart Rate Monitors and featuring guest speaker Chris Carmichael, legendary cycling coach. Awesome!
  • Ride the Century, survive the Century and receive a special commemorative water bottle courtesy of Scheller's and the Old Kentucky Home Tour. Yeah!

Thanks again and again to our Supporting Sponsors: Buffalo Trace Distillers and Scheller's Fitness & Cycling. And to our Golden Chain Sponsors: St. Matthews Dental Group and Gary L. Griffin, DMD, Millenium Sport and Import and Distinctive Signs. And thanks to all our contributing sponsors: Creation Gardens, Inc., Mark's Feed Store, Republic Bank & Trust, Great Harvest Bread Company, Heine Bros., Nancy's Bagel Grounds, YMCA, and SunCom. We couldn't have done it without you!
