When you think of Kentucky, Daniel Boone and horse farms usually come to mind. What most people don't know is that the area's easy accessibility from major cities, quiet backroads, gentle terrain, and stunning river views make it an ideal place to explore by bicycle. 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 capital * Lexington and horse country * Kentucky Vietnam Veterans' Memorial * Harrodsburg, the first Anglo-American settlement west of the Alleghenies * Camp Nelson, a Civil War site * Kentucky River Gorge * Big 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.
