Old Kentucky Home Tour

by Jane Tyer

The 24th Annual OKHT is upon us and this year's ride will have some bodacious biking! 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 another award-winning ride. Register or volunteer today!

  • More music this year! Sag entertainment includes an Irish band - The Rashers; a German Polka band - The Kaelin's; an encore performance by Dr. Hemiola and the Blues Activators; Mollie Freibert and her hammered dulcimer and more!
  • At the Bardstown High School, let students and staff of the Louisville School of Massage relieve a little soreness in those overworked muscles. They will be on hand from 2:00 - 6:00 pm and will be giving complimentary massage to registered riders.
  • Purchase a pasta dinner on the lawn at Spalding Hall, catered by Xavier's Restaurant, and relax with a beverage from the beer garden.
  • Buy LOTS of raffle tickets for the new 2002 road bike. Donated by Supporting Sponsor Scheller's Fitness & Cycling, this beautiful bike retails for over a thousand dollars and could be yours for a pittance (if you win). 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 Millennium Sport and Import.
  • Stop in Spalding Hall and sample some of the best bourbons around, compliments of our Buffalo Trace.
  • Test ride one of Scheller's demo bikes, get some information about joining the Milestone/Baptist East Wellness Center, lay in the grass, make new friends.
  • 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, Scheller's Fitness & Cycling, Milestone Baptist East Wellness Center, and St Matthews Dental Care Group, Dr. Gary L. Griffin. And to our newest sponsor, The Patron restaurant, catering our gourmet lunch on Saturday.

Thanks also to Millennium Sport and Import, Creation Gardens, Nancy's Bagel Grounds.

And thanks to all our contributing sponsors: Great Harvest Bread Company, Distinctive Signs, and Heine Bros. Coffee.

We couldn't have done it without you.
