Set your clock a little earlier, put away your road bike and get out the gravel/cross/mtb to ride the crushed limestone of KY's longest rail trail. Starting point is the new trailhead parking lot in Royalton. Climbs and descents are all railroad grade, so nothing too steep. Store stop at Hager Hill (halfway point of the
35 mile route). (They have corn dogs!) Wheels roll at 9:00 a.m.
