About ACE

Ashland Cycling Enthusiasts, or ACE, a non-profit organization based in Ashland, KY, serves more than 250 members in the Kentucky, West Virginia, and Ohio tri-state area. Our members are just like you - people passionate about health and fitness. Our passions range from casual social bike riding and hiking to competitive and challenging bike racing. We ride hard together and we enjoy socializing together. We are a very supportive group that wants to assist you with achieving your health and fitness goals with special emphasis on cycling.

ACE is a volunteer organization that promotes all forms of bicycling, including road bikes, hybrids and mountain bikes, hiking and other outdoor activities. We formed our 501c3 in January of 2003.

ACE meets the final Monday of every month with a special holiday meeting in December. We rotate our meeting location throughout the Tri-State area. Please see our Facebook page for the next meeting information.

ACE members are covered on their rides with insurance via their membership dues. You must be a club member in good standing to be entitled to club insurance and it MUST be a designated club ride. Your primary insurance must pay first then after a $500 deductible, American Specialty kicks in and pays 100% up to $10,000. Immediately after an incident occurs, click the link below and REPORT the incident with American Specialty. Do this even if you think you won't meet the deductible. Keep copies of all receipts even those paid by the insurance company; keep all insurance papers relating to the incident. American specialty will send you forms to fill out to submit claims and you will have to attach receipts to the forms.
