Kentucky is a land of profound natural beauty—it’s a land of mountains, lakes, forests, rivers and magnificent, lush rolling countryside. We’ve chosen the Bluegrass region of north central Kentucky as the focus for our Kentucky Bluegrass cycling tour.

Highlights

  • Ride through beautiful Bourbon County, home to some of the world’s greatest thoroughbred horse farms—the breeding grounds for racehorses like Secretariat and Riva Ridge
  • Pedal through Fort Boonesborough State park, site of the fort constructed by Daniel Boone on the banks of the Kentucky River in 1775.
  • Visit Berea, the arts and crafts capital of Kentucky, which boasts over 150 antique shops and more than 40 crafts workshops
  • Explore Danville, the original capital of the Kentucky District of Virginia and a major trading center on the Wilderness Road that extended westward from Cumberland Gap
  • Stop at Perryville Battlefield State Historical Park, site of a major Civil War battle in 1862
  • Ride through Bardstown, home to four noted bourbon distilleries and is the repository for the legend of “good old Kentucky bourbon” and My Old Kentucky Home State Park
