Overall Difficulty:
Moderate if you've been riding all year, with some hills approaching strenuous. If you've been idle a while you'll find it very strenuous. Not for novices.

Details:
The start location is at the parking for the Old reservoir Trail. Pass the parking area by the ball field and play area at Frank Newman Park and go until you see the lot at the Porta-Johns. McVey way is narrow and hard to see -- tucked in between a row of townhouses and a large antebellum home. Look for Walking Trail signs. Scenic Outer Bluegrass. Share the Road signs have buggies --lots of Amish live in the area. If the group wishes, there are two possibilities for eating, Dinner Bell in Mays Lick, soul food/slow food and filling, halfway in ride; or Dinner Bell in Flemingsburg (neither is connected to the other, the name is coincidental) when nearly done -- a Mennonite market and deli with hot and cold sandwiches. We can skip both, there's a Marathon station to which Mays Lick Dinner Bell is attached if all you need is a rest stop. If we do stuff ourselves in Mays Lick, there's an alternate way back ; via Ky 11 from Ky 324 that cuts out most hills, but not the first three -- those come immediately after Mays Lick and taking it easy is the thing to do.
