Louisville KY - U.S.A.
For more information about our group see below and join us on facebook
Crazy Team Ridenfaden is a diverse group of cyclists based in Louisville, KY who ride year-round each and every Wednesday night, ending up at a little bar in German-Paristown called Seidenfaden's Cafe - hence Riden + faden. Summer heat, snow, and freezing cold - many of us ride year-round all over town and the surrounding area (this is where the Crazy comes in). What began as two cyclists cutting a ride short for a cold beverage at Seidenfaden's in 2009 has now grown into more than 600 riders for 2021.
We pay no dues, just our tabs. Some of us race; some pretend to race, some slow roll. Ridenfaden is made up of all levels of rider from beginners to pro and everything else in-between. We ride the road, we ride gravel, and we ride in the dirt on mountain bike trails all over the region. What unites us is our love of cycling and our support for local businesses (and our local bartenders).
While our weekly Wednesday night ride and monthly bike movie night at Seidenfaden’s are our main attraction, Ridenfaden hosts numerous rides every month of the year. From 20 mile spins around town to our epic 100 mile centuries around the city. We're always exploring and looking for new routes and opportunities to grow our cycling community.
RIDE WITH US EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT
Come join the fun EVERY Wednesday evening year round (yes, even in freezing cold)! REALLY FAST group 1 ride leaving from Willow Park, 1402 Willow Ave, Louisville, KY 40204 at 6:45 or the SLOW AND EASY group 2 ride leaving from Seidenfaden’s Cafe, 1134 Breckenridge St, Louisville, KY 40204 at 6:30.
WE WILL SPLIT INTO GROUPS OF 10 FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING
Both groups end up at Seidenfaden's 8 o’clock, for post ride beverages and socializing. Masks required. We also tend to have more challenging weekend rides and post ride meet-ups. See you then! Seidenfaden's, "where we park inside".
As the positivity rate continues to drop in Kentucky Ridenfaden plans to restart small group rides. We will take safety precaution, however, please remember that solo rides or small rides with close contacts remain safest. It is our responsibility to help prevent the spread of the virus. If Kentucky’s positivity rate starts increasing or riders are not abiding by the safety rules group rides will be stopped.
