This route is one that I travel all the time and never gets old. The bends, curves, and long sweeping hills of KY make it an exceptional ride for all types. I find that Fall is the best time to ride this route because of all the colors that the south offers. From crossing the Cumberland River on the Ferry and passing the Steam Plant on the other side of 233 makes this route one of the most enjoyable routes I've ridden. I have road this on Sport and Cruisers and on both bikes it can be challenging. We follow this route to Fat Daddy's Bar and Grill out in Land Between the Lakes and then follow HWY 232 to HWY 79 and take it easy on the ride home.

Drive Enjoyment

The roads are great! They have been repaved within the past couple of years and offer intermediate to advanced riding skill. Everything from flat, to straights, to long flowing

Tourism Opportunities

These roads are long with minimal rest stops and service stations. There is one local service station in the middle of the route that I stop at every time. They're service is nice and friendly staff.

Be careful on this road. I would suggest when you hit 232 to take it slow then turn around and hit it hard as there is someone who dumps gravel all over the road once there are multiple bikes hitting it in the riding season. been warned by local police.
