The Horsey Hundred is the premier cycling event of the Bluegrass Cycling Club. We’ve come a long way since the inaugural Horsey Hundred was held at the Kentucky Horse Park (Lexington, KY) in 1978. The first event featured a 50 mile route option on Saturday and Sunday with an optional Century ride on Saturday. Riders were provided with maps, but there were no road markings and rider support. Participants were, however, treated to a slide show and movies at the Horse Park Saturday evening. No records exist of how many participated the first year, but the next year (1979) had sixty-five participants. From 1980 – 1982 the Horsey Hundred was held at Midway College (Midway, KY). By 1982 the number of riders more than tripled to over 200. In 1983 the Horsey Hundred moved to Georgetown College in Georgetown, KY which remains our home today.
