The Round Barn Bike Ride & Tour is an annual favorite and the region’s best kept secret of the summer bike touring season. This year choose from the Family Fun Ride (33 miles) or the Challenge Rides (68 or 80+ miles). The routes feature flat to gently rolling terrain through some of southern Indiana’s most scenic and picturesque country side. Riders will experience the tour’s two signature round barns with opportunities for self-guided tours of these architecturally unique agricultural art forms. View the Stuckwish Round Barn and the Hall Round Barn.
Be sure to enjoy a walk or ride through the Medora Covered Bridge, the last standing triple span Burr Arch Truss covered bridge in Indiana and the longest covered bridge in the US. Click here for information about the Medora covered bridge. More Medora Covered Bridge info here.
Medora, Indiana is home to the only National Maple Syrup Festival. Click here
The Challenge Rides include the Fun Ride route and then break out to hilly Western Jackson County for two major hills and SAG stops at 2 country stores. Whether you’re interested in a carefree, leisurely roll taking in the sites or a serious and challenging workout conquering some intense inclines, this ride is sure to please you all the way around.
To round out the day plan on a quick trip to Nashville Indiana after the ride.
