My friend Chad texted me late in the week proposing a gravel ride in Bourbon County, so I of course accepted. We met up Saturday morning in Uniontown and headed north towards Mound City. Chad had a vague route in mind, so all I had to do was follow his lead. We ended up finding a bunch or gravel roads that were new to both of us, and which included some great hills and scenic, low-traffic roads. I don’t think we were passed by a single vehicle during the entire ride. Hard to beat that!
My Strava activity is here.
It wasn’t a big day for photos, but here are a few:
I ended up with just over 63 miles. It was a great day for a ride — mild temperatures, light wind, and abundant sunshine. I do love the terrain between Uniontown and Mound City, with a mixture of challenging hills, rolling prairie, and densely wooded river valleys. It is always amazing to me how beautiful this countryside is, and yet how few people live there.
