#69MilesForNicky Ride Details


Just as Nicky Hayden fans have been doing annually for the last five years, June 9, 2023, will mark the day we once again gather to celebrate the legacy of "The Kentucky Kid" with a memorial bicycle ride that fans across the globe can join. This is truly an international event, so besides the 69-mile ride in Southern California, we're encouraging everyone to map out a route wherever you call home. If you don't have a bike to ride, how about walking 6.9 miles! No matter where you are, with every pedal stroke, you'll join a community spinning on two wheels in honor of the 2006 MotoGP World Champion. 

New this year to the SoCal ride at Oakley Headquarters is the option to ride the MTB course. Signup and register FREE online for one of the TWO course options; a 16.9-mile MTB course led by Jeff Emig or the classic 69-mile Road Cycle course led by Colt Nichols! Online registration is open and will close on 6/08/23. Onsite event signup is from 6 am to 7:30 am on 6/09/23. The first 50 to register will get a free limited edition swag bag, so sign up soon. As always, the 69 Miles For Nicky Ride is free to participate in! 

Join the #69MilesForNicky 2023 STRAVA Club to get both course routes and to log your miles with or without the group.
