West Ky here. Primarily the lakes area. Lots of good roads to ride.

Paducah here. Where do you ride RJM? What do you think about the new part of the greenway?

A little after the fact....

Any suggestion to a fat 37 year old :lol: of where I might "ease" back into things or is it baptism by fire time?!

They have a new MTB trail at Miles Park, now called Beckley Springs, near Eastwood off Shelbyville Road. I rode part of it until I got tuckered out. Not technical, just some climbing.

Here in Louisville. Ride a vintage Stumpjumper and a poor mans Rivendell, Cross-Check...

Old thread but what the heck. Reside in Alvaton, ride mostly next town over in Bowling Green. Weekends I travel to Brentwood to ride their paved trails. Currently pedaling a Surly Karate Monkey tricked out by local shop, built from scratch. Love the steel ride.

Just ran across this thread. . .born and raised in Louisville (J-town area, Taylorsville and Six Mile). I've been in Lexington for over twenty years now.

Moving to Cadiz, KY on Lake Barkley.

Looking for road rides and I just picked up a nice MTB to ride at LBL.

Ride suggestions welcomed and/or someone to show a KY noob where to ride.

Thanks for the tip. I joined the club, and I will definitely join in on some of the rides.

Louisville here! Hoping to get into biking soon, but am a little wary of throwing down too much money on my first bike.

Great thought process. No matter what you by now, you will want to change after miles and experience with your route, rise.
we are blessed with great bike stores here, I would suggest Old BIkes Belong on Preston St. He has great refurbs for very reasonable prices, then will take it back in on trade for something else later. John is a great guy! Good luck with whatever you decide, be safe!

I'm in Cadiz, LBL area. Just bought a Trek fx 7.2 in hopes of losing weight.

I'm in Cadiz too, would like someone to ride with on the road or the trail. Losing some weight would be good for me too. If that works for you, leave a message here and we'll figure out when we can meet. I've got a trek fx 7500 that's a few years old, I'm riding a C'dale R1000 now. I have a Merckx carbon frame and I plan to swap the Campy components from the C'dale to the Merckx frame. Also building a new bike with an IGH. Never tried one of those before.

Yea, I actually tried to PM you but I did not enough post. I would like to meet up sometime, however I will warn you, I will be awfully slow. I have not rode in a while and I am big. If you can handle that then we will have to try to find a time to meet up. Where do you usually ride? I live right in town so I will mostly just be riding the trail until I build up enough endurance then I am planning on trying to ride the bypass towards hop town since there is such a large shoulder. And the name is Matt by the way.
