Kentucky has thousands of miles of roadways that attract cyclists every year. Several have been designated as official Kentucky Bicycle Routes, and many more local favorites can be found in every county in Kentucky. The TransAmerica Bike Trail, which stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic, travels through Kentucky, and highlights some of our best known attractions along the way.
Cycling events can be found in Kentucky all throughout the year. Many attract thousands of cyclists and travel over some of the best cycling landscapes in the country. Bicycling is a great way to experience the various regions and historic locations of Kentucky.
