We had our best Old Fashion Days ride to date.  Thank you for coming out and supporting the B&O Trail. The Old Fashion Days Bike Tour was sponsored by Gear Up Cyclery.  This great casual ride featured an 11-mile, 33-mile and a new 46-mile route option.  This festival, which ran all weekend, has been running for over 40 years and is a great showcase for the quaint town of North Salem in northwest Hendricks County.

WHERE ~ North Salem United Methodist Church on Pearl Street in North Salem, IN

START TIME ~ Sign-in begins at 7:30 AM on Monday, September 4, 2023.  There was no mass start of riders at specified times.  All riders departed once they had completed their check-in, prepped their bikes and donned a helmet!

WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST/LUNCH ~ Each registrant receives a festival food voucher to use at the food vendor of their choice.  Choose from pancakes (7:00am to 10:00am only).  Unfortunately, Perillo's Pizza was not open on Monday this year.

ENTRY FEES ~ Registering online saved you time. Kids under 12 rode (and ate) for free.

ROUTE DESCRIPTIONS ~ The routes of 11 miles and 33 miles each formed a figure 8 around the central starting and ending point.  The 46-mile route formed a figure 8 around the second SAG stop.  The starting point also served as a SAG stop plus there was a second SAG stop on the second leg of both the 33-mile and 46-mile routes.  Click HERE for a downloadable route map.  Printed maps were available on the morning of the ride.

PARKING ~ Festival parking was available around the Town of North Salem.
