OKHT 2002
Like Fine Kentucky Bourbon

by Kathy Schmitt, Chair, Old Kentucky Home Tour

Like fine Kentucky Bourbon, the Old Kentucky Home Tour has aged 25 years.

Mark your calendars, the 2002 Old Kentucky Home Tour is scheduled for Sept. 7-8. If you thought it was fun last year, wait ‘til you see what we have in store for you in 2002.

The Tour will start and end at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park with three fully supported routes to Bardstown on Saturday — 55, 70, or 100 miles, and all riders return on the same 55-mile route on Sunday. New this year: the OKHT is adding a 100-mile Time-Trial! This is a USA Cycling-sanctioned event (USA Cycling License required, available day of ride) and promises to be a very exciting addition — attracting Mad Dogs from all over the region.

An awesome, commemorative jersey will be available for purchase (see the 2002 jersey design). Each ride participant will receive a cool T-shirt, music and refreshments at all sags, a fabulous lunch on Saturday, entertainment, carriage rides, bourbon tasting, and food in Bardstown Saturday afternoon and evening, Chris Cakes pancake breakfast, the legendary Cookie Stop, and a party at Sawyer Park Sunday afternoon. The OKHT welcomes back Scheller’s Fitness and Cycling and Baptist East/Milestone Wellness Center as two of our Supporting Sponsors for this year’s ride. Rides will be scheduled from these sponsor locations in July and August, check the touring schedule. Millenium Sport and Import will again be sponsoring the carriage rides in Bardstown, and Nancy’s Bagels and Heine Brothers will provide bagels and coffee for breakfast on Saturday. We welcome Clarksville Schwinn as a new sponsor for our post-ride pizza party. Thanks also to Buffalo Trace Bourbon for sponsoring the bourbon tasting.

This kind of support is what makes this ride one of a kind. Please thank and support them.

Finally, to help make this ride a success, we need volunteers. In case you forgot, volunteers ride free! Be part of the fun and contact Kathy Schmitt or Billie Beachy to volunteer.
