10, 25, 50 or 62 Cycle Routes
Register for Double Creek and come out and enjoy the beautiful roads leading out from John Rudy Park! Bicycle riders will enjoy the scenic and lightly traveled roads with green stretches of farmland, rustic bridges, and country churches.
We want to thank our past cyclist participants for their input to improve the ride. Cyclists can start as early as 7 AM, which allows plenty of time for rest stops and food at the finish before the heat of the day.
Cyclists will leave Rudy Park through the main entrance and continue out on scenic roads that incorporate new routes and still keep some of the historical “Double Creek” route as part of the event. Check out our cue sheets so you can see how we have blended new and old routes. Rest stops will be available along the routes for your rest and comfort.
