These routes travel the area of southeast Fayette County and parts of northern Jessamine County.  Most roads are two-lane rural roads with light traffic, passing by some horse farms and possibly a vineyard.  The goal is to have an enjoyable jaunt through the countryside. The ride will generally be moderately difficult.  There are some long hills and moderate rollers.

 

Make sure you have a helmet, water, and a spare tube that fits your tires.
