Description

Riding close to the Ohio River in the tri-state Kentucky/Indiana/Ohio region, this section moves through the Borderland. 

This is a narrow strip of land lining both sides of the river that saw some of the Underground Railroad's most intense activity, and where a concentration of physical evidence remaining from those days still exists. The towns of New Albany, Lancaster and Madison in Indiana, and Augusta, Old Washington, and Maysville in Kentucky all have buildings, churches, homes or sites to visit. Roads are generally narrow and winding with low traffic counts. The route alternates between following the river and heading inland.

At Maysville you will cross the river into Ohio, and then ride downstream a few miles to Ripley, which comprises a fifty-five acre National Historic District. There is a 16-mile spur into downtown Cincinnati. The city holds numerous sites relating directly to the struggle for freedom, including the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and the Harriet Beecher Stowe House.

ABOUT ADVENTURE CYCLING MAPS
Adventure Cycling maps are created by cyclists, for cyclists, and they are some of the best available for those in search of discovery and adventure in North America. The maps reflect the association's research as well as suggestions from thousands of cyclists who have explored the Adventure Cycling Route Network. Adventure Cycling develops the best cross-country, loop, coastal, and inland cycling routes available, with turn-by-turn directions, detailed navigational instructions for the tricky sections, and elevation profiles in the high country.

The maps are waterproof and designed to fit in a handlebar-bag window or jersey pocket. The maps provide information specifically for cyclists: the location of bike shops, sources for food and water, and listings of overnight accommodations including camping facilities, small hotels, and cyclists-only lodging.
