Avid cyclists know the local roads and streets to avoid.

When riding his bicycle from his Greenwood home to Shelbyville, Michael Kyle knows he has to avoid Whiteland Road because it’s too narrow to allow the heavy traffic to safely get around him. There is some room on the shoulders of U.S. 31, but the traffic is too heavy and fast-moving to make that route safe, he said.

Local cyclists have plenty of options in Johnson County where they can ride safely, including bike trails in Greenwood and Franklin and low-traffic county roads with hills near Prince’s Lakes and Trafalgar.
