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, then linger after the ride and enjoy the "Bites, Beer, and Bourbon" cookout under the stars and plan to spend the night in our charming Kentucky State Park accommodations that will be whispering your name.

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.

Choose from among four ways to participate:

Ride, stay for dinner, and spend the night in the lovely accommodations at the park

Make the most of your experience, and participate as a part of a team. You're most welcome to register as a Team Captain and recruit your own team members. Teams consist of friends, family and co-workers who want to help raise awareness and funds to support research, patient programs and advocacy efforts. Another option is to join an existing team. They'd love to have you! For more information, contact

You can register as an individual, but participating as a part of a team increases the fun and the impact you can make!

Once you register, you'll have access to your Bike the Bluegrass Participant Center. You’ll have the ability to customize your personal fundraising webpage, share your reason for participating, and send emails to ask others to join you or donate. We are here to help you - every step of the way!
