Poker Pedal in June

Pedal from Clear Creek Park Amphitheatre through scenic Shelby County KY to support Phase 2 of the multi-purpose Greenway Trails under construction along Clear Creek… as featured on the downtown mural featured on this site, painted by Carole Powell.

A $100,000 matching grant has been received from the state so we need about $80,000 to start construction on Phase 2. Every dollar from the Park’s Poker Pedal will help!

Riders can register online at Late registration fee $10 more after midnight May 27.   Stops along each route provide refreshments, a History Quiz with prizes at the end for those with the most correct answers, and a draw for cards to create the prize winning poker hand!  Prizes awarded for this non-competitive ride.

*62 mile …$45 registration fee

*40 mile …$45 registration fee

*21 mile …$20 registration fee

*2 to 8 miles …$8 registration fee single; $24 for family of four; $6 each additional family member; children 5 and under free

“We will gather at Clear Creek Park’s Amphitheater, 717 Burks Branch Road for the adult routes. There are some major hills, otherwise, it’s as flat as a biker could imagine!” Parks volunteer Dee Maynard explained. “The short routes are ideal for children and families who want a secure and safe route since it winds through the park and surrounding neighborhoods.”

Raindate will be Sunday, June 4, but, in keeping with the poker theme, we are betting on good weather and nice temperatures this year. We have already been handed a winning hand, thanks to our corporate sponsor Shelbyville Chiropractic & Rehab Center and sponsorships from Shelby Tourism Commission, Clear Creek Conservation Trust and Fit4Less.
