Bourbon Burn 2023


Event Dates: September 29-October 1, 2023
Camping Provided the Nights of September 28-30

The Bourbon Burn is a three-day, fully-supported bicycle tour of the bourbon distilleries and thoroughbred horse farms of Kentucky. Explore quiet country roads and quaint communities while biking to distilleries nestled amongst the rolling bluegrass hills. Daily distance options range from 20-100 miles and stop at up to six different distilleries throughout the event. Back at Bourbon Base Camp, located at Kentucky Horse Park, sip local bourbon from the same distilleries you biked to that day and enjoy live entertainment with friends, old and new. Registration is open to riders 21 and older.  The Bourbon Burn is a three-day tour, with loops departing from the Bourbon Base Camp each morning. Riders can choose between short, medium, or long options each day, plus a century ride option on Saturday! Get registered with the Burn, then get registered with Padre’s!
