The Kentucky Cycling Challenge

Organized and brought to you by:

Since it's inception The Kentucky Cycling Challenge has been an offshoot of the Bluegrass Cycling Club.  This year the KCC was transferred, for several reasons, to the organization Bike Walk Kentucky. Who is Bike Walk Kentucky? First of all, here is our home website

Our mission... is to educate and advocate for safe bicycling and walking across Kentucky. 

We envision... a healthy and active Kentucky in which cycling and walking are safe, accessible and welcoming to all, without regard to ability or income through development of bicycle facilities, multi-use paths and trails. 

Bike Walk Kentucky... is guided by its strategic plan. Kentuckians from throughout the Commonwealth came together to develop this plan between 2018 and 2020. They represented a diverse group of sectors and abilities, including tourism professionals, accessibility advocates, government officials, hikers, and cyclists, to name a few.

Although the Kentucky Cycling Challenge is free to you, please consider supporting the KCC and BIKE WALK KENTUCKY  here 





The Kentucky Cycling Challenge is entering into our 9th year. The purpose of the Kentucky Cycling Challenge is to promote cycling in Kentucky, to encourage participants to travel to different parts of the state to ride and explore the local area, and to provide achievable goals with a tangible reward for all cyclists who accept the challenge
