Dodging the Roadkill: Cindy’s On The Barge

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyHardin, KY – On a sunny Sunday afternoon, I was taking my wife on our weekly “2-up” ride. I had discovered some new roads that I wanted to show her and decided we would land at either Kenlake Marina, or Barkley Lodge. I had planned for us to stop for lunch at one of the two destinations.

My route was to take highway 41 to Hopkinsville, then ride highway 164 over to Cadiz. It’s an absolutely breathtaking view of the Kentucky countryside with tree covered stretches of highway and open roads that only the Kentucky back roads can provide.

We come out on highway 68/80 at the bridge. From there, you can get to Land Between the Lakes, or as we did, take off for Grand Rivers, KY.  It’s a great ride if you haven’t been.
