Road Cycling

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 1976 TransAmerica Cycling Route crosses through Kentucky as it stretches from the Pacific to Atlantic Oceans.  Visiting cyclists should note that portions of the 76 route, as well as other popular routes, may feature winding and narrow roads with steep grades.  Kentucky's topography provides for a variety of routes, and cyclists should be prepared for elevation changes, as well as sharing the road with traffic, when visiting Kentucky to ride.

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.
