Wayne County, Indiana is an excellent place for recreational cycling. Situated on the boundary of changing terrain, it provides ready access to many scenic, low traffic country roads. To the south there are rolling, wooded hills and to the north lie classic plains. Many of our small communities have quaint general stores and cafes waiting to be discovered. You can even ride to the highest point in Indiana - without slipping into a "granny gear"!
