February 21, 2023. Louisville, KY. – To commemorate the 10th annual PNC Tour de Lou, an exclusive, limited-edition jersey was unveiled tonight during an event at TEN20 Craft Brewery, which also served as the kick-off for the cycling event’s Official Training Program, which gets in gear this weekend.
In a celebration of a decade of the event, the 2023 jersey features hot pink and teal Pegasus. Made of 100 percent polyester, moisture wicking fabric, the colorful short-sleeve design boasts a half zip and three elastic waist pockets on the back.
The 2023 PNC Tour de Lou has moved to a Sunday this year and will be ready to roll on April 16. The Derby Festival is partnering with the Louisville Bicycle Club to produce the event, which features a variety of cycling distances, including 20, 35 and 62.1 miles (Metric Century). The route will again be an open course and will ride through the home of the Kentucky Derby. The Metric Century course encompasses two states – Kentucky and Indiana. Plus, the Family Adventure Ride returns for the second year, with a casual two-mile looped course along the Waterfront featuring a scavenger hunt.
The FREE six-week PNC Tour de Lou Training Program is for cyclists of all experience levels and includes group rides led by the Louisville Bicycle Club, beginning Sunday, February 26th and taking place through Sunday, April 2nd. Norton Sports Health, who has led the Training Program for the GE Appliances miniMarathon and Marathon since 2013, is teaming up with the Derby Festival and PNC in 2023 as the Official Medical Provider and Training Partner for the PNC Tour de Lou.
The jersey retails for $80 and can be purchased online at KDF.org. Cyclists can also still register for both the PNC Tour de Lou and Training Program at KDF.org.
