Lexington Kentucky Road Trip

Hi Everyone. 

I’m putting together a 5 day/4 night club trip to Lexington, KY, leaving Wednesday May 18 and coming back on Sunday May 22.  The hotel is near downtown Lexington and currently prices at about $100/night for a room with two queen size beds.

The roads look fun, very light traffic on the routes, it’s not very far away, and it’s a place the club hasn’t really been to.

I started putting the trip together myself, but then John G. pointed me to a shamrock tour in RoadRunner magazine that was better than what I was doing.  So I’m using three of their four day trips, with a couple of small changes.  It’s in their Nov/Dec 2016 issue if you have access.

Here’s the itinerary.

DAY 1 – Wednesday May 18:

Meet at BP station in Caseyville IL at 9:30.   Ride 328 miles on I-64 to GuestHouse Lexington hotel.  Check in for 4 nights.  Maybe have a one hour evening ride from the hotel if I can find anything worthwhile.

DAY 2 – Thursday May 19:

220 mile ride west of Lexington thru horse country, the Daniel Boone forest, and the NADA Tunnel (or Eye of the Dragon).

DAY 3 – Friday May 20:

180 mile ride north of Lexington thru more horse country,  along the Ohio River, Blue Licks Battlefield State Park.  

DAY 4 – Saturday May 21:

195 mile ride south of Lexington.  More horse country, Kentucky River, more Daniel Boone forest. 

DAY 5 – Sunday May 22:

Ride 300+ miles home.

There are a few distilleries nearby.  Maybe we can add in a tour if people are interested.

Send me an email at eric.crum@gmail.com if you think you’re interested or have questions, but don’t book rooms quite yet.  If we have enough people interested, then I’ll finish up the GPX files and see if we can get group rates at the hotel.
