TransAmerica Bicycle Trail Now Marked in Western Kentucky
The TransAmerica bicycle trail is now marked through western Kentucky. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has placed signs along the route north of Madisonville and through Marion before continuing into Cave-In-Rock, Illinois.
The United States Bicycle Route 76 was one of the first two national bike trails. It was established in 1976 by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials as part of the country’s bicentennial.
KYTC spokesman Keith Todd said in a news release for motorists to “share the road” with bicycles.
The trail runs nearly 500 miles across Kentucky from Crittenden County to Pike County.
