Bike the Bluegrass

Bike the Bluegrass 

Join us for the all-new American Lung Association annual bike ride supporting clean air and healthy lungs!

Bike the Bluegrass is an inspired new ride concept, a daring adventure, an awe-promising undertaking.  Explore the many magnificent natural wonders unique to Kentucky on your bike.  Why ride the same routes when you could be experiencing something new and wonderful . . . rolling rivers, captivating caves, spectacular sandstone bridges, gorgeous gorges, and wondrous waterfalls.  You could say we've gone unbridled!

When you ride Bike the Bluegrass, you’re sure to love the new scenic vistas you'll discover each year, but there’s even more to your Kentucky encounter. Linger after the ride and enjoy our “Bites, Beer, and Bourbon” themed cookout under the stars. This relaxing dinner topped off with a sampling of local craft beers and a signature bourbon drink promises to leave you restored and ready to cozy in for the evening. As it happens, charming accommodations will be whispering your name, so plan to spend the night.

This third Saturday of September experience will tempt you back year after year, and you’ll never feel the need to resist knowing the funds you donate help everyone breathe a little easier.

No matter which route you choose, all rides begin and end at General Butler State Resort Park.
