About the event

BFK’s magnificent Fall Bike Celebration Bike Tour is always on the Sunday during the third weekend of September (Sept. 22 in 2024).  The ride offers something for everyone. 

Our “two states of mind” Vicksburg-Shipshewana Century explores the Amish country of Indiana. All routes will take you back in time–past photogenic Vicksburg Quilt Trail paintings–and will start/finish on the grounds of the lovingly curated Vicksburg Historic Village.  The tour is supported with maps, SAG stops & snacks, and clearly marked routes. All riders will enjoy a delicious meal at ride’s end!

PRE-REGISTRATION BENEFITS

Everyone who PRE-registers ONLINE will get a coupon for a free cyclist’s Ice Cream cone at Apple Knocker’s Ice Cream Parlor. PLUS we are also hoping to get pre-registered riders a coupon for 10% off at the Distant Whistle Brewhouse in beautiful downtown Vicksburg. Both coupons will be good from when you pick up your pre-registration packet through the remainder of September.  AND – pre-registered riders who pick up their packets and get their wrist bands in person at Saturday’s Ice Cream Social (4-7pm) can skip the line and start the ride without having to pick up your packets/wrist bands at the Day-Of Registration desk on Sunday.  Go to our separate dedicated web page HERE for detailed Route Highlights, Start Times & Locations, SWAG, Parking, SAG Stop Opening/Closing Times, Pre-registered Rider Packet Pick Up, Ice Cream Social and other important information.  Our dedicated website is where the most up to date information is found (vs. on BikeReg).

ROUTES

BFK's Fall Bike Celebration Ride includes many great routes, all starting and finishing on the grounds of the wonderful Vicksburg Historic Village (see HERE for map).  We like to know which Routes participants might want to ride as their primary but not exclusive choice(s) in order to help us with food and water, etc. logistics.  Mileages are approximate.  For details about the routes and online maps (when finalized) go to our separate ROUTES web page.
