The Kentucky Distillers Association and the Bluegrass Cycling Club have teamed up to provide backroad bike routes for the popular Kentucky Bourbon Trail that take tourists through Kentucky’s rolling hills and scenic countryside.
“We’ve been surprised at the growing number of requests for bicycling routes,” said KDA President Eric Gregory. “So we turned to the experts who know the rural roads and who know the roads that work best for bicyclists.”
Created by the KDA in 1999, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail tour features six distilleries, each offering a unique and educational experience in the art and craft of bourbon-making: Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey and Woodford Reserve. Last year the trail attracted visitors from all 50 states and 16 countries.
Maps and cue sheets for the bike routes are available at kybourbontrail.com or bgcycling.org.
