This ride starts in Bloomington and does a 250 mile loop of southern Indiana, ending back in Bloomington. Start out in Bloomington and take route 37 south. Take this all the way down to the bottom of Indiana to the town of Tell City. Then go east on rt 66 till you hit rt 62 and continue east. Follow route 62 into Coryton. In Coryton get on rt 135 heading north. Follow route 135 all the way back up to Nashville, IN and then get on to rt 46 heading west and back into Bloomington, IN where you've just completed this beautiful 250 mile loop of southern Indiana.
This ride starts in Bloomington, but the fun starts just south of Paoli. The road winds and twists through the Hoosier National Forest to Tell City. Then follows the Ohio River to the old state capital of Corydon. Then travels past two state parks and back through Hoosier National Forest past Brown County state park to the tourist town of Nashville, then back to Bloomington.
Route 37 is one of the best motorcycle roads that Indiana has to offer. New black top South of Paoli. Route 66 offers some great views of the Ohio River. Look for the cemetery on river side of route that has sign that says Dead End. Hope you see as much humor in it as I did. Road conditions are very good along 66 and 62 but watch for gravel in turns.
Many shops to walk through in Nashville. Good eats in a little one horse town (literally) of Story. Cabins and lodging available at Brown County State Park. Hotels and restaurants in Coryton.
