Today starts our 2021 season.

This year we are working with 2 new tourism committees. Corbin and Livingston. We’re once again working London/Laurel County and Jackson County Tourism.

All four located in Southeast Kentucky. We have great riding in our area and hopefully everyone will come ride Boondoggle Events and come ride many other times.

Also want to thank the people that contact me asking if I wanted some give away stuff for the races. Alexander Lee, Rico Richeson, Ben Callahan and Peter Mitchell.

KGC route Change

https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35574673

This is the new proposed route for the Kentucky Gravel Championship. It will Start in McKee. The new route will require less traffic control and we will have way more room. There is a few restaurants in town. We will offer a meal voucher with each entry that can be redeemed at the restaurants. More importantly the finish will be in town!

The route is 10 miles shorter. The section we lost was the 5 mile out and back from the falls to HWY 290. Of the 10 miles we lose 8 of that was paved. So our gravel percentage went up. Our ratio is now 47 gravel miles & 16 paved.

BOONDOGGLE DAY AT CAMP

"RED BOONE"

1-29-21   

We are tentatively scheduling a mountain bike race at Levi Jackson park in London, KY for April 10th.  Red Boone will be 5 laps of the Broken Spoke course (5.5 miles).   We have to clear a couple small hurdles next week and we should be good.  If all goes as planned registraition will open Feb 12th at 9pm.

April 10th Race

1-26-21

We have decided to move the Cave Run\Lockegee event to Laurel Lake Baptist camp in Corbin KY. There was a lot "IFs" involved with the Cave Run.  Eventually we hope to race there, but with Covid-19 and mask mandate on federal property we didn't have clear picture of what would be required from us as a race promotor and racer.  

Levi Jackson is city owned property.  We will have Covid guidelines and we can make our event work within the guidelines we have been given.   

1-22-21       Federal Mask Mandate

At this time we are unsure how the federal mask mandate will effect the Cave Run race (Lockegee 2.0).  The mandate call for mask in any federal building or property.  Does this mean out on the trail?  I don't know and the USFS office in Morehead doesn't know either.  Registration is scheduled to open February 5th.  We have option to reschedule or move the race to Broken Spoke trail in London KY.  We will have 4 races this year!.  The Broken Spoke trail is on city property.  There isn't a mask mandate, but CDC guidelines must be followed.  As of now registration will open February 5th and hopefully we will have a "concrete" answer on the mandate guidelines by February 1st.  Long Story short we will race at Levi Jackson Park or Cave Run and hopefully on April 10th.  

2021 COVID RACE GUIDELINES

LIVINGSTON GRAN PRIX

I met with Livingston and Rockcastle County officials today about the July 10th race.  We are super excited about it!  We're are looking to make it a big weekend for Livingston and Boondoggle Events. We are looking to draw cyclist from all disciplines

 Registration will open April 1st!

Is it a ride or a race?  Isn't a race a ride to see who get's back first?  Isn't most group rides a race to the top of the hill, a race to the county line sign?  🤷‍♀️

1-10-21   105k FKT and other FKTs

Some changes in the Boondoggle 105k FKT and future FKTs.  In order to keep things simpler and streamlined all Boondoggle 105k FKT attempts will be kept on the site. We will make a special page for it with rider's name, date and time and download link.  Also we are making a download for Map My Ride & Ride With GPS for the Boondoggle 105k FKT.

We would like to have some FKTs from you guys! Keep in mind rider's safety is the greatest importance in making a route.  The FKT doesn't have to be a high mileage death march.  Make it a ride that riders are challenged, but when they're done thay can say it was a great time! 

Start thinking of your favorite routes and give a couple days to get set up.  

Our biggest base of riders are from Kentucky,  but we'll post a FKT from anywhere as long as you ride that area.

Boondoggle regular and podium finisher Jordan Sands may have built the perfect bike for Boondoggle events!  Put some 42mm tires  gravel tires on it.   It's not a hybrid!

The Lockegee 2.0 course (same as 2020).  The race will leave the campground and make 2 loops. Not sure if racers will return to the campground to start 2nd loop.  This will depend on how much traffic support we get.

We will have a lot more to information on the Livingston Event next Friday evening!  This will be our biggest event so far

________________________________

As we move forward this is the current Kentucky Covid19 regulations and guidelines which could change.  The biggest thing is 50% capacity at events.  

Our first event is April 10th "Lockegee 2.0" and will be staged from the West Group area at Twin Knobs Campground. The group area holds 180 people.  We will take the first 100 riders to sign up into the race.  After that we will try holding a 2nd race later in the day.  We will take up to 180-200 riders for the event.  We hope to have one race.  We will do what we can to accommodate everyone.  Our plan will also have to be approved by the Rowan County health dept.
