The 24 Hours of Booty course in Indianapolis is a 3.5 mile loop that rolls through the beautiful neighborhoods around Butler University.
While the course is closed and has full police support, we want to make sure the event is safe and fun for everyone. Keep these things in mind as you ride:
- Children must be at last 12 years old and comfortable riding in a crowd to participate.
- Enter and exit only at the start/finish area.
- Helmets are required. Lights (both front and back) are required when riding after dark.
- Obey all traffic laws and rules of the road.
- Aerobars are not permitted on the course.
- Headphones and cell phones are not allowed while riding.
- Be aware that cyclists on the course have varying levels of experience. Ride carefully and watch for other riders, vehicles and pedestrians on the course.
One of the great things about 24 Hours of Booty is that riders can set the goal that is right for them! There are cancer survivors riding just a few laps after completing treatment, riding with people who want to hit the 300 mile mark. Check the training page for several plans from our friends at Total Cyclist.
