Whether you're going out for a day trip or two-day ride, cyclists of all abilities will find many opportunities to explore this beautiful state. With detailed maps, mile-by-mile directions, and fascinating historical commentary about what you'll see along your ride, author George Garber will lead you along winding rivers and through covered bridges and pastoral farmlands, in addition to such places as:
Frankfort, the state capitalLexington and horse countryKentucky Vietnam Veterans' MemorialHarrodsburg, the first Anglo-American settlement west of the AllegheniesCamp Nelson, a Civil War siteKentucky River GorgeBig Bone Lick State Park, home of fossilized woolly mammoths
...and much more. In addition, cyclists can ride a portion of the Transamerica bike route that runs from Virginia to Oregon, and that traverses almost the entire length of Kentucky. 25 black & white photos, 26 maps.
