Louisville Area Rides

Louisville and Southern Indiana riders..........

Wanted to start a thread for posting local rides.

Now that we have longer days, it's possible to do some after work riding.

I know there are a few Dual Sport/Adventure guys around the area, maybe we can get out and share some of our favorite routes.

Anybody have any comments or suggestions...Let's hear them.

-Jerry

Lemme get back to you.

Me and the Wee are going out for a shorty to test out the new (used) Multitec. Probably ride down towards Taylorsville and back.
I like the loop out towards Leavenworth (lunch at the overlook), Tell City, cross the Ohio and back on 60, down Muldraugh Hill etc.

On road, me and my roommate hop across the bridge and go down towards Horseshoe. Just keep going on past it and it's a fun ride and easy enough to find your way around. Plenty of hills and blind curves for a nice afternoon.

Thanks for posting that link Walstib. Indiana 450 from Bedford to Dover Hill sounds interesting!

Weeknight Ride

Going to be riding Thursday after work. There is a chance of rain as of right now, but that could change by then. I'll be at a small parking lot down by the great lawn, under I-64, just off River Road. It catty-corner from the back of the Louisville Slugger Field. See link: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...145c0e32115eeb

I'll be there at 5:30 and looking to ride for 2 - 2 1/2 hours. May ride over in Indiana or out towards Oldham County or where ever, I just want to ride. All riders/bikes welcome.

-Jerry

Hey Jerry. I met you on Road Dad's Hoosier National forest ride. I am headed to Illinois Thursday afternoon for the Moonshine Lunch Run festivities but would be all over it otherwise. I'll subscribe to this thread and hope to see you on the road somewhere.

Hey John,

Yeah RoadDad and Woodsrat sure put on a good ride, I hope they do another one soon.

Hope this thread is used by anyone around Kentuckiana who's going out for a ride. Doesn't have to be an epic ride....just a ride.

Never been to the Moonshine lunch run, maybe you'll give us a little RR with pics when you get back.

Hi Jerry,
Thanks for starting this thread and I'll be sure to make some of the up coming rides. Taking my boys fishing this Thurs. but who know's...maybe we'll get back early.

You planning to stop some where for a cold frosty (ice cream!) during these rides?

Mark

(Ice Cream)! Sounds good to me. Maybe some delicious locally made ice cream.

Weather; looks like rain will be gone before noon tomorrow, so I'll be riding as planned. Come on out if you can.

Great day for a ride...

MBABC (Mark) and I had a very fun ride and picked-up the Indiana photo tag. We even ran into Sourjon and friend, who were riding back from the Moonshine Lunch Run. Mark also showed me a very cool gravel/dirt road leading down to the Ohio river. We ended up with about 150 miles of back roads. Here are a couple of pics:

Riding again Thursday -- meeting at 5:30. See post #7 for location. Will be riding for around 2 (+-) hours. As usual, everyone welcome. Will probably be 99-100% paved roads.
