Inaugural Bourbon Country Burn, 3-day cycling event, will be Sept. 29-Oct. 1


A brand new cycling event will debut in Central Kentucky this fall, combining several of the state’s signature tourism industries into one weekend.

The Bourbon Country Burn is a three-day cycling event scheduled for Sept. 29-Oct. 1.

Cyclists will stop at six different bourbon distilleries throughout the event while being able to experience the beauty of Central Kentucky’s historic horse farms on the region’s scenic back roads. Daily distance options range from 20 miles to 100 miles.

Routes of all lengths are looped, which will return riders to the Bourbon Base Camp at the Kentucky Horse Park.  Live entertainment, food, and – of course – bourbon tastings are scheduled for the event. Camping will be available at the Horse Park, and the Fairfield Inn & Suites Marriott – Lexington North is the partner hotel for those wanting less rustic lodging.

Registration is open to riders 21 years and older and limited to the first 500 registrants. For more information, visit
